MONDAY, APRIL 4 KUALA LUMPUR: Dewan Rakyat sitting at 1000 (0200 GMT); KUALA LUMPUR- Prime Minister Najib Tun Abdul Razak officiates Mara's 50th Anniversary celebration at Premiera Hotel, Menara Mara at 1530 (0730 GMT); KUALA LUMPUR- Signing ceremony of a new Strategic Partnership Agreement between Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) and Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAB), Meeting Room 409, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) at 1000 (0200 GMT)

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is the biggest winner of the recently revised passenger service charges (PSC) as the airline’s Asean fares could become more competitive effective Jan 1, 2017.

This is because the revised PSC will see a reduction by 46% to RM35 to Asean flights at the KL International Airport (KLIA) as opposed to an increase by 9% to RM35 at KLIA2. Asean routes make up about 40% of the total traffic at KLIA.
