Unfair to charge same passenger fee for KLIA2

I AM appalled by the recent Bernama commentary, “Equal charges will ensure KLIA passengers don’t subsidise KLIA2” (The Star, Nov 1), arguing that the Malaysian Aviation Commission’s (Mavcom) decision to increase the passenger service charge (PSC) for KLIA2 should be “accepted and respected”.

According to Mavcom (and Bernama), services and facilities at KLIA2 are comparable with KLIA and it is on this basis that the equalisation of PSC should be “accepted”. This statement makes me question whether any of Mavcom’s senior management has travelled using the low-cost airport infamous for the 30-minute walk to the boarding gates and cramped terminal corridors.
