I first saw this on Malaysia Asia Facebook who shared Airline News Asia . So a new budget airline for Malaysia and will make the Batu Berendam International Airport as her homebase.
Recently a DAP lawmaker challenged the newly elected Transport Minister to relive the Melaka International Airport that seems to be a white elephant when there is no activity since Mac 2014. Will Rayani Air be the answer to the challenge?
Rayani Air is expected to depart from Melaka International Airport (MKZ) in late Q4 this year. Not much information was known about the new budget airline but it will add up to the competitive lo cost air travel market in the country. To date Malaysia has already Airasia, Malindo Air and Firefly in the market.
The airline will be using a former MAS Boeing 737-400 and downgraded to only 1 class consisting of 169 seats.
Rayani Air is expceted to fly to five domestic destinations from MKZ : Penang, Langkawi, Kota Bharu, Miri and Kota Kinabalu.
While their base airport will be at Batu Berendam, Rayani Air’s operating office is currently located in Shah Alam.
