The six-year-old airline is applying with the CAB for a foreign air carrier’s permit (FACP) to operate international scheduled air transportation services in the country.
“Parties opposed to the granting of this application must file their written opposition on or before the date of hearing, furnishing a copy of the same to the applicant, or appear at the hearing with such evidence as may be proper under the premises,” the CAB said.
Failure to do so constitutes a waiver of the other airlines’ right to be heard and CAB will proceed to hear and decide on the application, the aviation regulator said.
MASWings operates flights to Malaysia’s two largest states, Sarawak and Sabah; Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei; and Pontianak and Tarakan in Indonesia.
The airline also aims to serve soon the BIMP-EAGA (Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area) region operating turbo-propeller services.
BIMP-EAGA was founded in Davao in 1994 by the four Association of Southeast Asian Nation countries to accelerate economic growth and development.
The hearing for MASwings’ application is set for August 15. Frequency of flights and other details will be decided at the hearing, but a CAB official said the airline is seeking permission to fly to Manila.
