Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, Malaysia’s minister of international trade and industry who is also the government’s designated second-in-command, said that discussions will soon start and all options will be considered to save the countries airline industry.

He told in an interview that a discussion regarding the possibility of this merger had also taken place last year, however, they need to be continued.

“We were also looking at some of the proposals coming from international players,” he said. “Now the situation is becoming more complex because of this pandemic. We are looking at all options.”

It has not yet been disclosed which other international players have expressed interest and participating in the discussions.
