Airline in hot water over 'hidden charges'

Budget airline AirAsia is facing legal action, after an industry regulator suggested the carrier was hiding charges on certain services.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is concerned that Aussies who are hoping to save more cash to spend on their prepaid travel cards by booking cheap flights are being stung, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

According to representatives of the organisation, the airline has failed to disclose all of the charges that holidaymakers will face when booking flights between various Australian cities and destinations in Asia.

The ACCC wants the company to issue a correction notice on its website, which informs customers that they were not given thorough details of how much their services would cost.

Earlier this week, AirAsia X revealed that it would be offering cheap flights between Sydney and Kuala Lumpur on a daily basis from April 1st. However, it recently suspended longer-haul services between Australia and London and Paris.
