Mergers

Mergers and acquisitions can dramatically change the competitive landscape of an aviation service market. For this purpose, the following are considered as a ‘merger’ under the Malaysian Aviation Commission Act 2015:

  • two or more previously-independent enterprises merge into one;
  • one or more individuals or enterprises acquire control of another enterprise;
  • an enterprise acquires assets of another enterprise which results in the former enterprise replacing the latter in the business; or
  • a joint venture created to perform, on a lasting basis, all the functions of an autonomous economic entity.

MAVCOM prohibits any merger which will substantially lessen competition in any aviation service market.

If your enterprise is involved in a merger or an upcoming merger, you may voluntarily notify MAVCOM of such merger to find out if it infringes the prohibition on mergers. Direct all correspondence on mergers through our contact page.
