Weststar says it has not made any offer for Malaysia Airlines

KUALA LUMPUR (July 15): The Weststar Group has not made any bid for Malaysia Airlines Bhd by itself or with a partner, a company official said.

“We have not made any bid on our own or with anyone,” the official said. He, however, confirmed that Weststar was approached to look at Malaysia Airlines and that it had asked for more details on the national airline but has not received any information yet.

He was responding to an article in The Edge Financial Daily today (July 15) which said that Weststar had approached Najah Air Sdn Bhd to make a joint bid. The Weststar official said there have been no discussions with Najah Air.

Najah Air, which is led by former AirAsia Group Bhd chairman Datuk Pahamin Ab Rajab, has said it was interested to take over the troubled national carrier and had met Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to discuss the matter.
