MYAirline recently was granted its initial Air Service License (ASL), clearing the way for Malaysia's newest airline to start selling tickets ahead of its planned launch before year's end.

The budget airline was granted the ASL by the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) effective November 15. Valid for a year from issuance, it follows the awarding of its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) by the Civil Aviation Administration of Malaysia (CAAM) on October 1.

With the ASL and AOC, MYAirline will now be able to apply for domestic traffic rights to start operating within Malaysia.

"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,” said Rayner Teo, Chief Executive Officer, MYAirline.

Using a fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, MYAirline plans to launch its first flights during the month of December.
