KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 11, 2015:The claims being made on ownership of the three aircraft currently parked at the KL International Airport (KLIA) could not be satisfactorily verified, according to Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB). In their response to The Rakyat Posts enquiry to MAHB with regards to a claim made by Swift Air Cargo that it owned the three Boeing 747-200F aircraft, MAHB in a brief statement reiterated that the issuance of the notice was a legal process for debt recovery. Earlier this week, MAHB took out a notice in two local dailies, The Star and Sin Chew Daily, in a bid to reach out to the owners of three aircraft “abandoned” at KLIA. Earlier today, The Star Online reported that Swift Air Cargo had claimed ownership of the three planes since June 8 this year. In quoting the company’s CEO Captain Blue Peterson, the report stated that the sale of the aircraft to Swift Air Cargo was witnessed by solicitor Syed Amir Ibrahim of Syed Ibrahim & Co. “MAHB for some unfathomable reason, refuses to acknowledge Swift as the owners of the aircraft,” Peterson had said. Meanwhile, MAHB urged the rightful owner to furnish it with the required information for verification purposes. The matter of three aircraft made world headlines after the notice came out in Monday. MAHB managing director Datuk Badlisham Ghazali meanwhile told reporters yesterday that the owner of the aircraft had been found, but at that time, refused to disclose who it was. However, he did clarify that the three planes did not belong to Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB). The three Boeing 747-200F are all more than 30 years old and had spent most of its lifespan as a freighter plane for Air Atlanta Icelandic, among other airlines. Two of the planes had also been leased to MASKargo for a brief period of time.
