Rayani Air Inquiry: DCA Has Adequate Information To Investigate
KUALA LUMPUR, May 14 – The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) has received adequate information and explanation on Rayani Air’s flight suspension which led to the suspension of the airline’s air service licence on April 11. DCA director-general Datuk Seri Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said the department would proceed with the investigation based on information gathered in the first inquiry.
“DCA will analyse all answers and facts provided. Whether DCA is satisfied with the explanation given, is not for me to say right now…but all questions were answered by Rayani Air,” he told reporters after speaking at the Aviation Industry Forum: The Way Forward at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Campus in Kuala Lumpur here Saturday.
Azharuddin however, declined to elaborate on questions raised during the inquiry session held last Thursday with Rayani Air founder, Datuk G. Karthiyani at the DCA headquarters in Putrajaya. He said investigations would be conducted in accordance with Regulation 87(1) of Malaysia Civil Aviation Regulation 1996, adding that DCA would not conduct a second inquiry.
He said they will not disclose any information until investigations on the first inquiry are completed. The DCA has provisionally, suspended the Syariah-compliant airline for three months, beginning April 11. Following the suspension notice sent to the airline on April 11, the DCA will undertake full administrative and safety audit of Rayani Air’s operations to assess its compliance with the Air Operator Certificate.
