Tune Hotels offered six islands in Maldives By Lee Wei Lian
SEPANG, May 3 — The hospitality arm of the Tune Group, which controls budget carrier AirAsia, has been offered six islands in the luxury resort destination of Maldives where it can operate, said AirAsia CEO Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes.
AirAsia plans to start flying to the Maldives some time in the next six months.
Tune Hotels recently also announced plans to expand abroad, in Southeast Asia and Britain.
“AirAsia was invited to come and Tune Hotels was given six islands to build,” said Fernandes in a media briefing today.
A spokesman for AirAsia told The Malaysian Insider however that Tune Hotels has not decided yet if it will take up the offer.
Tune Hotels, a budget hotel chain, recently signed a RM746 million deal with London based Queensway Group to build 15 hotels in Britain.
