MYAirlines’ AOC revoked

Cash strapped low-cost carrier MYAirline has lost its air operator certificate (AOC) since April 15.

This was confirmed by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM), reported The Edge. The revocation was done under Regulation 193 of the Malaysian Civil Aviation Regulations 2016.

The revocation was done as MYAirline failed to get a new investor by April 14.

MYAirline will have to reapply for the AOC from CAAM and an air service licence (ASL) from the Malaysian Aviation Commission if it wishes to resume operations.

On October 12 last year, MYAirline halted operations, citing financial pressures, less than a year after it began flying.

CAAM CEO Datuk Captain Norazman Mahmud said that the MYAirline’s AOC would no longer be extended.

Airlines need the ASL and AOC to operate scheduled air passenger and cargo services. ASL is air service license.

A MYAirline spokesman confirmed that CAAM had revoked the airline’s AOC on April 15. He said the airline still harbours hopes of securing a new investor to revive its operations.
