Changes in the civil aviation regulatory regime relating to Air Services Permits (“ASP”)

12 Apr, 2016

Pursuant to section 100(1) of the Malaysian Aviation Commission Act 2015 (“Act”), all ASP holders whose ASPs were previously issued by Ministry of Transport (“MOT”) or Department of Civil Aviation (“DCA”) under the Civil Aviation Act 1969 (“CAA”) are authorised to continue operating non-scheduled services up to the expiry of the ASPs. Those ASPs cannot be extended beyond the date of expiry. Current ASP holders, if they wish to continue operations beyond the date of expiry, will therefore need to apply for a new ASP from MAVCOM.

In order to minimise the risk of service disruptions, ASP holders are advised to submit an ASP application to MAVCOM at least 90 days prior to the ASP’s expiry date and the application will be considered as a new application. An earlier submission is advisable.
