MAVCOM releases position paper on Malaysian airports industry structure

Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) released (04-Dec-2019) a paper outlining issues and challenges Malaysia's commercial airport sector faces, as well as recommendations on how the sector should be structured. MAVCOM’s position on the country’s airports industry is as follows:

  • There must be overall commitment towards regulatory certainty and governance. This includes clarity in the various roles that the Government of Malaysia plays and the independent enforcement of regulations. This in turn, provides a conducive environment to attract investments into the industry;
  • MAHB and other commercial operators need to carry out their functions with appropriate commercial bases and autonomy, subject to the appropriate regulations;
  • Malaysia should explore benefits of competition amongst airport operators, which needs to be in tandem with a strong legislative and regulatory framework. [more - original PR]
