KUALA LUMPUR, 9 January 2020 – The Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) recently released its fourth quarterly Air Traffic Rights (ATR) report. The report comprises MAVCOM’s ATR allocations for the Malaysian civil aviation sector for the period of 1 October to 31 December 2019.

During the final quarter of 2019, MAVCOM approved 37 ATR applications, representing 94.8 per cent of applications received by the Commission for the corresponding period. Of the 37 approved ATR, 12 were for domestic routes, while the remaining 25 were for international routes. Approvals for international routes were further broken down into 15 ATR for routes to ASEAN destinations, five for destinations in China, three for destinations in the Middle-East, and two for other Asian destinations.

Meanwhile, for the full year of 2019, the Commission approved 98.9 per cent of the 175 ATR applications it received from 1 January to 31 December 2019. Of the 173 approved applications, 60 ATR were for domestic destinations, 60 for ASEAN destinations, 26 for destinations in China and the remaining 27 for other Asian destinations and Australia. 

Breaking down the numbers for the final quarter of 2019 by airlines, Malindo Air received the highest number of approvals, totalling 15 ATR, while AirAsia Group and Malaysia Airlines Berhad followed with ten and seven allocations respectively for the three-month period. For the full year of 2019, the AirAsia Group received the highest number of ATR allocations with 75 ATR.

Meanwhile, of the 37 ATR approvals during the quarter of 2019, 21 ATR were issued for flights originating from KL International Airport (KUL), three from Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI), and the remaining 13 from other Malaysian airports.

In addition, 27 ATR that were approved prior to the final quarter of 2019 were not utilised by the respective airlines and were subsequently returned to MAVCOM during the quarter. The highest number of unutilised ATR was from AirAsia Group (16), and Malaysia Airlines (six). An additional five applications were also voluntarily withdrawn by the airlines (AirAsia 2; and Malaysia Airlines 3) in that period.
