BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Jan. 7 — AirAsia has denied rumors that it has canceled flight service to Brunei, saying the message is not true and services are still running as scheduled, Brunei's News website BruDirect.com reported on Wednesday.

As recovery efforts continue following the latest crash of AirAsia QZ8501, rumors of the suspension of AirAsia services to Brunei Darussalam are rife in the social media as the public wanted to know the authenticity of the allegations.

There is a message spreading in the social media saying that all incoming and outgoing flights using AirAsia to and from Brunei will be canceled until April 2015 and AirAsia maintenance will be checked until further notice.

In a short response to an inquiry, AirAsia dismissed the rumors. A representative said, "The message is not true," and services are still running as scheduled.

People in the region and those from around the world are still coming to grips with the Dec. 28 crash that has left 162 people, bound for Singapore from Surabaya, Indonesia, dead. (PNA/Xinhua)
