Shannon Rajan FAA downgrades Malaysia's air safety rating

Malaysia - SKRINE

Malaysia's International Aviation Safety Assessment air safety rating was recently downgraded from Category 1 to Category 2 by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The downgrade also means that reciprocal code-sharing arrangements between US and Malaysian airlines are no longer permitted.
