MAVCOM had announced a revision of the Passenger Service Charges (“PSC”) in October 2016 with the PSC and newly-introduced ASEAN PSC being equalised nationwide, with the only differentiated long-haul PSC between KLIA and klia2 planned to be equalised within one year. MAVCOM now plans to equalise the long-haul PSC as part of the move towards a best-practices aeronautical charges framework. MAVCOM has also commenced the development of a long-term aeronautical charges methodology which will adhere to global best practices in the field of aeronautical price setting. MAVCOM welcomes any feedback and comments on this Consultancy Paper. The deadline for submission of feedback is by 15 September 2017.
