AirAsia Bhd has urged the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) to come up with airport-specific calculation of passenger service charges (PSC) sooner than the industry standard of three to four years.

Group CEO Tan Sri Dr Tony Fernandes (picture) said the calculation process, which would reflect the available facilities at individual airports, could be done in six months.

“I applaud Mavcom for doing it and it is about time. Malaysia will be the first county in Asean to do this properly and I urge them to do it quicker,” he told reporters after unveiling the airline’s digitalisation plan at the Changi Airport T4 in Singapore yesterday.

In August, Mavcom COO Azmir Zain was reported as saying the commission was looking to revamp the calculation of PSC at local airports, in line with international practices. — Bernama
