Transport Minister Anthony Loke today announced a special task force to help the Civil Aviation Authority Malaysia (CAAM) regain its Category 1 status after the local regulator was downgraded by the US last week.

The task force is led by Datuk Kok Soo Chon, a former director-general back when the CAAM was known as the Department of Civil Aviation, on a pro bono basis.

Loke also said the CAAM will review all current fees and charges with an eye on raising revenue and eventually becoming financially independent from the government.
