The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is
said to have taken legal action AirAsia for failing to disclose full airfare prices on flights between
Australia and international.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the ACCC is asking the carrier to pay penalties as well as issue a corrective
notice on its website. Documents filed during legal porceedings read that the ACCC found fares on the
airline’s site since September last year would only display part of the
total price for flights flying between Melbourne, Perth and the Gold
Coast to locations in Asia and Europe.
Meanwhile, AirAsia Berhad has reportedly said they will conduct an internal investigation into whether the airline contravened an Australian law.
