Additionally, MYAirline plans to fly to Kota Bharu, Penang, Sibu, Tawau, Miri, Alor Setar, Terengganu and other main destinations in Malaysia upon obtaining the regulator’s approval.

Rayner Teo, Chief Executive Officer of MYAirline, said, “Finally, we are excited to announce that we are ready to ‘open-for-sale’. I would like to thank MYAirline community for their patience while we undergo the regulatory processes for our license applications. The Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) confirms that MYAirline complies to the requirement on safety regulations and has the professional capabilities to establish and maintain a system for aircraft operations.

Travellers now have a viable option for air travel in Malaysia as our entry will stimulate more travel demands in Malaysia. This is what MYAirline is about – providing affordable travel with class-leading services for everyone. On that note, I would like to welcome everyone to experience our products and services as we launch these routes in Malaysia.”

“We will be increasing our flight frequency as our domestic network expands and plan to start flying in the Asean region latest by Q2 2023. Providing this capacity for the community will attract more travellers and stimulate Malaysia’s tourism growth,” added Rayner.

A New World Airline

MYAirline is committed towards achieving its sustainability goals by being the first airline in the world to be fitted with light, innovative and eco-friendly seats. Manufactured in Italy, these ergonomically designed seats save around 800 kg of weight which translates to fuel saving.

The airline has made a significant investment in digitalisation, whereby it is the pioneer LCC in Malaysia to digitalise all relevant manuals (regulatory and non-regulatory) from day one. MYAirline’s other green initiatives include processing recruitment documentation digitally and administering financial processes on secure cloud storage.

MYAirline is the first airline in Malaysia to design a gender-neutral uniform for cabin crew with its unique jacket and pants styled with a pair of white sneakers. This set of attire gives a casual look whilst giving comfort for the cabin crews when on the go.

Rayner adds “It has been a challenging yet fulfilling two-year journey for us in MYAirline as we create this significant milestone in the Malaysian aviation industry. We are committed to build national pride by providing class-leading services and emphasising good customer service.”

*All-in fares includes airport tax. Flights and fares are subject to availability and are for one-way travel only.
