KUALA LUMPUR: For her role as a non-executive independent director at AirAsia, popular TV host and actress Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor is reported to have been paid close to RM280,000 in 2018 alone.

Recently, Twitter user @cocorello shared the information for all and sundry the salary 30-year-old is earning from the low-cost carrier.

The tweet read: “Yesterday I revealed that Neelofa was in Airasia's Safety Review Board and that in 2018, she made RM279,375 not incl RM8,000 allowance. Here are the receipts. (You can also see how much Tony Fernandes and Kamaruddin Meranun made that year, RM22.1mil and RM21.9mil respectively).”

While many Twitter users found that it was nothing unusual for anyone to be paid handsomely, some questioned her credibility as a member of Air Asia’s Safety Review board when she only went for mandatory training.

Having established her own hijab brand Naelofar Hijab successfully in 2014, Neelofa became the board member since December 2017.
