MEASURES TO EASE CHALLENGES FACED BY THE AIRLINES
The Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) recognises the difficulties faced by the airlines due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As the economic regulator for the civil aviation industry, MAVCOM strives to assist the airlines in their gradual preparations to resume full services.
Therefore, to ease airlines’ administrative and regulatory challenges, paragraph 6 of the conditions attached to all valid traffic rights (“Condition 6”) is removed effective 5 June 2020 until further notice. Condition 6 states that, “The airline shall commence its operations and utilise all of the air traffic rights issued to it within six months from the date of the grant of the approval to operate the air traffic rights as detailed in this letter. An air traffic right or the capacity of an air traffic right which has not been utilised by the airline upon expiry of the stipulated period shall be deemed revoked with immediate effect”.
Please note that this removal will not apply to air traffic rights that have already been deemed expired and automatically revoked, as well as for routes in which airlines have wilfully terminated on their own accord. The other remaining conditions attached to the air traffic rights remain valid.
Any further variation to the conditions attached to the air traffic rights, which may include the reinstatement of Condition 6, will be communicated to the airlines accordingly.
