Regulatory Services Charge

1 May, 2018

The Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM or Commission) as per subsection 18(2)(fa) of Malaysian Aviation Commission Act 2015 [Act 771], has implemented a regulatory services charge of RM1, to be rendered on each passenger departing from any commercial airport in Malaysia, with effect for tickets issued on or after 1 May 2018.

The regulatory services charge is not applicable to passengers using the Rural Air Services (RAS) in Sabah and Sarawak, and

  • passengers in direct transit;
  • aircraft crew members; and
  • children below the age of two years.

The implementation of this regulatory services charge will allow the Commission to continue driving various consumer-oriented initiatives for air travellers across Malaysia as well as make independent and impartial decisions for the industry, which supports the nation’s economic growth.
