THE Dewan passed the Civil Aviation (Amendment) Bill, which aims to raise the safety levels of public flights. 

The Bill is aimed at enhancing the integrity of public flight management, in its efficiency and effectiveness in implementing safety procedures. 

“With the amendments, the existing regulations will be made more effective to curb offences which could jeopardise safety,” said Transport Ministry parliamentary secretary Datuk Donald Lim. 

He said that under the amendment, an individual who put a flight in the path of danger, which could cause accidents, death and damage to public property, would face a higher penalty and punishment.
