Business as usual at Mavcom, says transport minister

SUBANG JAYA: Transport Minister Loke Siew Fook today dismissed talk that the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) would be disbanded, saying it is operating as usual.

“It is just a rumour,” he said when asked if there had been any proposal to disband the commission or merge it with the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM).

He told reporters this after launching Rapid Bus Sdn Bhd’s airport shuttle service from the Putra Heights LRT station to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and klia2 here.

This comes after a local paper reported that the transport ministry was evaluating a proposal to disband Mavcom, with its functions to be assumed by CAAM.
