Two More New Airlines to Begin Operations Soon

The nation’s aviation industry is expected to be boosted following the addition of another company which has received the Air Service Licence (ASL) from the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM).

Quoting an external media source, the company running on the concept of low-cost flights has already established an agreement to rent two Airbus A320. 

If all goes smoothly, it is said that the company led by a former higher management of a national aviation agency is set to compete with the existing aviation players. 

At the same time, one more airline using flights with turboprop engines will also be launched after receiving the green light for short-haul flights.

This new aviation company is said to soon provide flights from Subang, Selangor to Pangkor Island in Perak.

On January 6, SKS Airways Sdn Bhd announced that it was in the final process of getting the ASL to begin its service.

SKS Airways, a subsidiary of SKS Group headquartered in Johor Bahru is the latest scheduled commercial airline in Malaysia to be issued the full ASL.

A full ASL is needed to transport passengers, mail or cargo according to a fixed schedule via the air route between two locations, as long as it is within the Malaysian border. 

The licence is issued to applicants holding a valid Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM).
