Malaysia intends to achieve review of U.S. air regulator’s decision on aviation safety rating

The Malaysian Civil Aviation Authority intends to request a second audit from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which downgraded the country’s aviation safety regulatory rating, Trend reports with reference to TASS, according to a statement released on Tuesday by the CEO of the Malaysian Civil Aviation Authority, Ahmad Ridzvan.

In particular, he said, “We recognize some shortcomings in our work and are ready to eliminate them, we also intend to request a second audit. It will take no more than 12 months to improve positions.” He also said that the FAA decision announced on Monday applies only to this agency and will not affect the activities of local airlines, including the ones flying to the United States.

Meanwhile, a downgrade of safety prohibits Malaysian air carriers from increasing flights and launching new destinations to the United States. The FAA statement states that the Malaysian agency does not meet the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and also works poorly in one or more areas, such as technical expertise, trained personnel, reporting and/or inspection procedures.
