AirAsia Boss Tony Fernandes Selling Scottish Mansion For RM13.5mil

  • 19 Nov 2020

AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes is reportedly selling off his luxury mansion in Ayrshire, Scotland. 

According to The Sun news portal, the former chairman of the Queens Park Rangers football club is letting go of the mansion, named Skeldon House for £2.2 million (RM13.55 million), as means of saving his business empire amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The 56-year-old tycoon has resided in the property, built on a 125-acre land, for seven years. It has five rooms, a wine cellar, a gymnasium, a sauna, and an outdoor tennis court, among others. 

Aviation is one of the industries worse hit by the pandemic, and AirAsia is no exception. 

Last March, the low-cost airline suspended all its flights when the pandemic first hit the country and the Movement Control Order (MCO) lockdown measure was announced, due to the travel restrictions imposed by the government. 

Last month, Fernandes confirmed that AirAsia Bhd dan AirAsia X Bhd (the former's long-haul flight sister company) have laid off 10 percent of their 24,000 employeesas of late September. 

Earlier in June, AirAsia had retrenched about 250 more staff due to the pandemic.
