The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) will investigate an aircraft rollback incident that was said to occur on July 17 at klia2 as reported in the media.
In a statement today, DCA said it had not received any official report on the incident.
According to the report, the rollback incident involved the AirAsia Indonesia Flight QZ0120 at Bay Q11, klia2.
DCA said as the regulatory body responsible for the safety and efficiency of national air transport, it took pride over its role and responsibility in ensuring compliance to the International Civil Aviation Organisation's (ICAO) International Standards and Recommended Practices.
"To this effect, DCA conducts continuous monitoring and inspections on aerodromes to ensure that aerodrome owners or operators maintain and enhance safety level at airports," it said.
In addition, the DCA noted that the depressions at the klia2 aircraft parking stands and taxiways were identified as situations that might affect the required compliances.
"These issues were acknowledged by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) and corrective actions, short-term and long-term alike, have been implemented," it said.
The DCA said a MAHB-AirAsia joint-inspection team had been assigned to conduct daily inspections to ensure that aircraft parking stands and taxiways complied with the ICAO practices before the aircraft movement areas were opened for use.
"Areas that do not meet the safety requirements and compliances are closed and rectification works conducted," it added. – Bernama, August 9, 2015.
