Malaysia’s Newest Airline en Route to Take Off

This coming season will welcome Malaysia’s newest airline, MYAirline as it prepares its doors to officially open to customers. Joining the roster of servers such as Malaysia Airlines and Malindo Air, MYAirline will hopefully begin operations later this year.

Future Fliers: MYAirline Gain AOC in Journey to Certified Airline

In December of last year, MYAirline secured a conditional air service license (ASL), allowing them to undergo services until its expiration in December of 2022. During this time, the airline has recruited staff and cabin crew to become a part of the team that puts MYAirline in the sky.

Fast forward to just last week, the Malaysian air carrier received its Air Operator Certificate (AOC), a significant step toward becoming a certified airline. Things are looking good for the team, as they look towards gaining the final license needed before take-off.

Currently, the airline owns one plane in its fleet – the Airbus A320 – but hopes to gain another two Airbuses by the end of the year. In order to attain the required number of planes to be classified as an official airline, they would need a minimum of two aircraft within their fleet.

Visit The Mountainous Region Aboard Malaysia’s Newest Airline

Situated in Southeast Asia, Malaysia is known for its range of culture, food, and landscape. Home to ancient rainforests and bustling food markets, visitors to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed region will be able to experience an abundance of activities. At this moment, plans for international travel are taking a backseat as the airline focuses on operating regional flights for up to four hours.
