“The airline has been ordered to submit a written explanation by Oct 27.

“Mavcom will then evaluate whether MYAirline should continue as an ASL holder, or whether the ASL should be suspended or revoked pursuant to Section 43(1) of the Malaysian Aviation Commission Act 2015,” it said in a statement Thursday (Oct 26).
