A comprehensive policy defining all the key aspects of aviation, its direction, objectives and long-term strategies will be formulated to make it clear for all stakeholders.


The National Aviation Policy is first proposed and announced on 17 October 2011[1] The Transport Ministry has been tasked with drafting the policy framework, following an announcement by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.[2]

Before the announcement the former CEO of MAS, Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin, and AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman Rani, had in 2010 called for a clear aviation policy for Malaysia to ensure free and fair competition on a level playing field.

However, then transport minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat had shot down their call, saying that existing guidelines were sufficient.
