PETALING JAYA: After venturing into the football business, cosmetics tycoon Dr Vida (pic) has now set her eyes on buying shares in the troubled Rayani Air.
“Yes, I have interest in this airline business but I will have to look at the problems first and how I will go about this,” she told The Star Online.
It was reported that Dr Vida, whose real name is Datuk Seri Dr Hasmiza Othman, would meet Rayani Air owner Ravi Alagendrran soon to get more information about the Syariah-compliant airline.
The airline’s fate is hanging in a balance after the Transport Ministry suspended its operations for three months effective Apr 11 for contravening conditions of its Air Operators Certificate (AOC).
Ravi had said he was willing to sell-off his 51% stake at the airline, provided the new investors maintained its Syariah-compliant status.
Dr Vida, the owner of Vida Beauty Sdn Bhd had previously inked a two-year deal with the Kelantan Football Association (Kafa) worth RM16mil.
The Kelantan football team subsequently changed the colour of its team jersey, and also painted its stadium in the same colour as well.
