As of now, it stated that the company has yet to commence its businesses and is in the midst of securing its first contract.

MMAG chairman Datuk Rathakrishnan Vellaisamy opined that the system will make international air travel safer, easier and faster.

“MMAG believes that our investment in Maasdots will help us to mobilise the world post Covid-19,” he said in a statement today.

Rathakrishnan revealed that the company is exploring with partners in various countries such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates among others, to market TAHSS.

In addition, he said Maasdots is also in discussions with the relevant Malaysian ministries and government agencies for the implementation of the system.

The company is also in early talks with a party to acquire aircrafts and licenses.
