Kuala Lumpur, 13 December 2018 – Malaysian football fans can rejoice as PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB) is sponsoring the jet fuel for the discounted AirAsia flights to Hanoi so that Malaysians can fly to Vietnam to support Harimau Malaya in the second leg of the AFF Suzuki Cup final this Saturday.
This collaboration between PDB and AirAsia has further reduced the cost by RM50 per guest. AirAsia will refund the difference to the fans who bought their seats earlier.
Speaking about the initiative, PDB’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Sri Syed Zainal Abidin said, “The team had showcased a tremendous performance at the last match and PDB is proud to be part of this exciting, patriotic journey. This is one of the ways that we offer value-added services to Malaysians as the nation’s leading retailer. We are happy to be able to team up with AirAsia to realise the fans’ dreams of supporting Team Harimau Malaya in person and keep their spirits burning.”
He added, “I would like to urge all Malaysians to take this opportunity support the team and be part of the excitement. We wish Team Harimau Malaya the very best, and do make Malaysia proud!”
