PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd has clarified that the Government has approved the implementation of new international passenger service charge (PSC), aircraft landing charge and aircraft parking charge.

Malaysia Airports said the approval was in line with the operating agreement it signed with the Government in February 2009.

“The international PSC will be RM65 compared to the previous RM51,” it said in a statement yesterday.

It said the RM65 charge would apply at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) main terminal building, Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang, Langkawi International Airport, Penang International Airport, Kota Kinabalu International Airport Terminal 1 and Kuching International Airport.

Malaysia Airports added that the rates for international PSC at LCCT and Kota Kinabalu International Airport Terminal 2 would be RM32, up from RM25.

“At this stage, it is intended that the increase be applicable from Sept 15. The PSC rates have not been changed since 2002,” it said.

On the aircraft landing charge, Malaysia Airports said it would be increased in three stages by 9% per annum – in January this year, January 2012 and January 2013.

“Aircraft parking charge will also be increased in three stages by 18% per annum in the same period,” it said.

Under the present incentive scheme, Malaysia Airports provides free landing for three years for all new routes and additional frequencies operated by airlines.
