Meet the new local commercial airline in Malaysia

Malaysians now have another option to fly thanks to the launch of SKS Airways.

The new local commercial airline was awarded the full Air Service Licence (ASL) by the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) effective Jan 1.

Its booking system is already up online and the airline will take to the skies in the near future.

SKS Airways director Datuk Rohman Ahmad said the airline hopes to serve passengers soon, especially those from underserved destinations.

”We at SKS Airways has been working hard during this period to introduce a new commercial airline that focuses on unserved and underserved routes destinations.

“With the recent obtainment of ASL, we are now officially in business and looking forward to serve our customers while maintaining the highest hygiene and safety standards,” he said in a statement.

SKS Airway’s operation is mainly focused on popular island-based resorts, coastal resorts with connections to major cities within Peninsular Malaysia.

The airline’s initial fleet will consist up to four DHC6 Twin-Otter.

Although the pandemic has been challenging for the aviation sector, Rohman said it has also presented new opportunities.

”The last two years have been tough for the aviation and tourism industry due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, we foresee that the doors of opportunities will slowly start to open up,” he said.

SKS Airways is the latest scheduled commercial airline in Malaysia to be granted a full ASL.

An ASL is required to transport passengers, mail or cargo on a fixed schedule by air between two places, so long as it falls within Malaysia’s borders.

An ASL will only be issued to applicant that holds a valid Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM), which SKS Airways received on Oct 1 last year.
