KUALA LUMPUR: A judicial review application has been filed today by AirAsia Bhd and AirAsia X Bhd against the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) for refusing to decide on the disputes between Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd (MASSB) and the airlines.
Based on the statement released by the airlines today, the judicial review filed was pertaining to the burdening passenger service charge (PSC) and the poor level of service at the second terminal of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA2).
AirAsia and AirAsia X as quoted in New Straits Times maintained that, in reference to the Mavcom Act, the refusal to decide on the disputes is therefore contrary to sections 74 to 78 of the Mavcom Act.
Mavcom however, refused to decide on the disputes on the basis that ‘the interpretation and applicability of sections 74 and 75 of the Malaysian Aviation Commission Act 2015 [Act 711] are currently pending disposal by the Court’.
AirAsia and AirAsia X both have applied to strike out the actions as they are filed in breach of sections 74 to 78 of the Malaysian Aviation Commission Act 2015 (Mavcom Act) and made a claim of RM 480 million against MASSB for damages incurred as a result of the poor level of service at klia2.
