MAvcom may introduce new passenger charge

The Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom), set up in March, may charge up to 1 ringgit (Bt8.80) per airline passenger to fund its operations. This could generate more than 83.5 million ringgits a year. Last year some 83.5 million passengers travelled through Malaysian airports, which is predicted to grow.
Mavcom regulates economic and commercial matters related to civil aviation in the country. It will introduce a set of regulations for the industry and help the government map the future of the industry. It also will issue some licences to airlines, ground handlers and airport operations, from which it can collect fees to sustain its operations but this will not be sufficient, hence the charge currently under discussion.
