Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB)  is working with local and international airlines to boost usage of electronic billing to ensure all carriers pay their passenger service charge (PSC) on time.
 
MD Datuk Badlisham Ghazali said this move is in response towards Malindo Airways Sdn Bhd recent PSC arrears amounting to RM70 million owed to MAHB.
 
“On a month-to-month basis, MAHB issues out about 400 invoices to all carriers that operate in the country. The E-billing portal, which was introduced two weeks ago would definitely make the processes more efficient,” he said in a media briefing at Sepang earlier today.
 
Badlisham stresses that all carriers need to service their PSC on time as it is a mandatory regulation to operate their fleets in Malaysia.
 
“Any failure to do so would result in license revocation or flight suspensions,” he said.
 

The Malaysian Reserve reported that Malindo Airways Sdn Bhd has made an initial payment of RM20 million of the outstanding RM70 million outstanding arrears.

The hybrid carrier made headlines following claims that it had accumulated RM70 million in unpaid PSC arrears to the airport operator and certain quarters wanted the authority to take action on the carrier that is majority owned by CEO Chandran Rama Muthy.
