Malaysia’s new low-cost carrier, MYAirline was granted approval for Air Service Licence and Air Operator Certificate

Malaysia’s latest low-cost carrier (LCC), MYAirline Sdn Bhd was granted its initial Air Service Licence (ASL) from the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) effective 15 November 2022. The Air Operator Certificate (AOC) was awarded by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) since 1 October 2022.

These approvals authorise MYAirline to sell air tickets and undertake commercial air transport flights utilising its fleet of Airbus A320-200 from its hub in Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2).

Rayner Teo, Chief Executive Officer of MYAirline, said, “We are pleased to receive our ASL from MAVCOM a little over a month after CAAM awarded us an AOC. This shows that we are equipped to operate commercial flights with professional capabilities to establish and maintain a reliable system for aircraft operations. Our sincere appreciation to the Ministry of Transport, MAVCOM and CAAM for their support.

“I believe this would have been impossible to achieve without the team’s hard work and commitment to ensure all operational standards and safety regulations are met. It is indeed a huge milestone for us.” added Rayner.

Born during the height of Covid-19 pandemic MYAirline had created employment in the aviation industry, building a new aviation ecosystem in Malaysia. The LCC is currently home to more than 370 employees, targeting to reach 500 employees by the end of this year.

The new carrier made a mark in Malaysian aviation history by being the first airline in Malaysia that went through digital Compliance Questionnaire audit process and obtained AOC within CAAM’s client charter.

YBhg. Datuk Captain Chester Voo, Chief Executive Office of CAAm said, “We are pleased to share that MYAirline has completed its initial AOC audit through CAAM’s Compliance Questionnaire audit process. CAAM will continue to ensure all safety and security compliances are met at all times to ensure public and industry safety. We wish MYAirline the safest of airline operations.”
