KUALA LUMPUR, July 27 -- A Suasa Airlines flight under investigation by aviation authorities was non-commercial and did not violate local laws, said the firm seeking to operate a chartered airline. Suasa Airlines Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Captain Sheikh Salleh Abod also said the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) had approved the two non-commercial flights on July 22 on an aircraft owned by his company from Subang to KLIA and subsequently to Langkawi.
Suasa Airlines Sdn Bhd (Suasa Airlines) had violated aviation laws, including carrying paying passengers on a "demonstration flight" from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Langkawi, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai. "Though Sausa Airlines has received 'technical approval' from DCA (Department of Civil Aviation) in the form of an AOC (Air Operator Certificate) on July 22, it did not give the airlines to start flying commercially," Liow told reporters here Tuesday.
Its paradise climate makes Langkawi a great place to visit, but it's wise to learn about the different types of weather before booking that perfect vacation. Its summers and winters may seem backwards although It is usually warm all year round with temperatures ranging from an average of 27 degrees Celsius (81degF) during the coldest month of July to about 29 (81degF) during the hottest month of February.
The only reason the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) allowed Suasa Airlines to fly from Subang to Langkawi in Kedah last week was because the airline had claimed it was a non-commercial flight. In his clarification, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said Suasa Airlines does not have the Air Service Permit (ASP) or Air Service Licence (ASL) from the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) that is required to transport paying passengers.
"As of today, Suasa Airlines does not possess a valid ASP and therefore cannot perform a commercial air service operation. In order for an entity to operate a commercial airline business, it is required to hold an ASP and an AOC (air operator certificate)," Mavcom said in a statement yesterday.
SEPANG, July 26 -- The Department of Civil Aviation had allowed Suasa Airlines Sdn Bhd to fly out to Langkawi last week without a permit as the latter had said the flights were for non-commercial reasons, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said today. "Why DCA allowed the plane to fly? DCA at that time they received application, it's just a point to point flight from Subang to KLIA, if it's a position flight, then it's non-commercial. When they applied for flight from KLIA to Langkawi, it is just a demo flight, it is not a commercial flight," he told reporters here.
