Media Statement on Passenger Service Charges (PSC)
Sepang, 23 September 2016: Malaysia Airlines welcomes the confirmation from the Minister of Transport that the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) will announce soon their decision on equal passenger service charges (PSC) at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
Some 51 airlines, The International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) have all requested equal charges between the old terminal and the super new facility at KLIA2.
Malaysia needs to attract new international airlines and air services to boost tourism and equality is crucial to airport growth.
We look forward to working with Malaysia Airports Berhad to significantly grow our business with the new charges. Equal charges will allow the airport to invest in vital repair and upgrades of the 18 year old KLIA terminal to match the super new facilities available at KLIA2. It would also allow Malaysia Airlines to compete on a rational basis in bringing down fares.
