AIRASIA has denied that it is being investigated by the UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) over a kickback scandal with European aircraft maker Airbus, and vows to cooperate with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

“At the outset, AirAsia wishes to clearly state that it was neither involved in any way whatsoever with the SFO’s investigation of Airbus nor given any opportunity to provide any information or clarification to the SFO,” it said in a statement today.
