PSC for international flights at klia2 raised to RM73 from Jan 1


PETALING JAYA: The passenger service charge (PSC) for international destinations beyond Asean at klia2 will be raised to RM73 from RM50 currently, effective Jan 1, 2018.

The increase marks the completion of the gradual equalisation of PSC at klia2 with those of other airports in Malaysia, following the 2017 review performed by the Malaysian Aviation Commission’s (Mavcom).

All other PSC rates at klia2 and other airports remain unchanged. The revised PSC will be applicable to tickets issued from Jan 1, 2018. Tickets issued prior to this date will not be subjected to the new rate even if the date of travel takes place on or after Jan 1, 2018.

To recap, during Mavcom’s revision of the PSC in October 2016, only the PSC rate applicable at klia2 for international destinations beyond Asean was pegged lower than those at other airports in Malaysia.

The PSC rate at klia2 for such destinations was set at RM50, while the rate set for other airports in Malaysia was RM73.

With the latest revision, the PSC rates now stand at RM11 for domestic destinations, RM35 for Asean destinations and RM73 for international destinations beyond Asean, across all airports in Malaysia.
