Malaysia confirms new passenger taxes

International passenger service charge effective on Nov 15

Malaysia Airports has announced that new air passenger rates will come into force from and including November 15. Increases in the international passenger service charge (IPSC) – paid by departing international passengers – and aircraft landing and parking charges (ALPCs) were delayed in September. A review of the increases in the taxes has now been completed and approval has been given. However, the ALPCs are to be raised in three stages – January 2012, January 2013 and January 2014.
The IPSC will increase from MYR 51 ($16.60) to MYR 65 at all airports in Malaysia, excluding the low-cost carrier terminal at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Terminal 2 at Kota Kinabalu International Airport, where the fee will increase to MYR 32.
Malaysia’s Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said today that the country expects to welcome a total of 36 million foreign tourists by 2020.
