    When air travel is only for the elite, it seems fair that airport maintenance (and so on) should be funded by specific user fees — instead of being subsidized out of government’s general revenues.

    It certainly used to be the case in Malaya that most people could not afford to travel by air. Is it true today?

    Any indication when this receipt was issued? Thanks.

      I’m guessing it dates back to between 1972 – 1975? ’72 being the year that MAS was formed from what was previously Malaysia Singapore Airways (MSA) and 1975 being the year of official adoption of the term Ringgit.

    Good clues, Shen Ooi, and a pretty conclusive guess. Thank you!

    I did notice that the entire receipt is in English. I wonder what’s on the reverse.
