MYAirline tickets selling like hotcakes

The brand-new low-cost carrier is looking to fly to regional markets in 1Q23


MYAIRLINE tickets are selling like hotcakes as travellers are making their journey to three destinations introduced by the airline.

Its CEO Rayner Teo (picture) said the confidence was based on the high passenger load factor even though bookings only opened on Nov 26 with the first flight starting tomorrow.

“There are flight routes that record 100% passenger load factor with an average of 75%,” he said.

He said this year, there are three more new domestic routes planned to take off including Kota Baru, Penang and Sibu while other routes in the pipeline are Tawau, Miri, Alor Setar and Terengganu will be announced once getting regulatory approval.

Meanwhile, Teo said for international routes, they are looking to fly to regional markets such as Singapore and Bangkok in the first quarter of 2023 (1Q23).

The brand new low-cost carrier is set to operate its first three flight routes tomorrow, kicking off with flights from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 to Langkawi, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, offering fares starting from as low as RM48.

The direct flights will include once-daily flights to Kuching and twice-daily flights to Kota Kinabalu and Langkawi.
