PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB) is collaborating with AirAsia to bring Malaysian football fans to the second leg of AFF Suzuki Cup Final against Vietnam this Saturday. As the official fuel partner for AirAsia, PDB is sponsoring jet fuel for the discounted AirAsia flights for Harimau Malaya fans travelling to Hanoi, Vietnam to support our national football team. With this sponsorship, the cost is further reduced by RM50 per guest. AirAsia will refund the difference to all fans who purchased 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!”
Now here’s a bit of trivia from Petronas: Today, our domestic retail arm, PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB), operates more than 1,000 service stations nationwide. But #DidYouKnow, our first flagship service station was opened in 1981 in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, where it still stands to this very day? (below)
