MYAirline Announces Temporarily Suspension of Operations starting 12 Oct Until Further Notice

MYAirline, which began in 2021 and took off for the first time in December 2022 with leased Airbus A320 planes, has been making headlines for a range of issues. These include the sudden departure of their CEO, Rayner Teo, and difficulties in paying their service providers and employees on time.

Since 21 August, MYAirline reduced the number of available seats on domestic flights by 25%. They've also had trouble operating at busy airports, like Singapore Changi Airport, due to limited landing slots, even though they were given a two-year extension by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia.

Up to yesterday, news broke that MYAirline is close to securing a new investor, potentially Abang Abdillah Izzarim Abang Abdul Rahman Zohari, the son of Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg. This could provide much-needed financial relief for the struggling airline.

The recent suspension of services has surprised many. I haven't had the chance to fly with MYAirline yet, and I hope they can get back to regular operations soon.

The below MyAirline suspension notice was published in MYAirline's official Facebook page this morning.

MYAirline Announces Suspension of Operations

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 12 October 2023 – MYAirline regrettably announces the suspension of its operations effective 12 October 2023 until further notice.

We have worked tirelessly to explore various partnership and capital raising options to prevent this suspension.

The Board, shareholders and all of us at MYAirline will be working tirelessly to resume operations as quickly as possible but at this stage we are unable to commit to any timeline. We reiterate our sincerest apologies for any difficulty and inconvenience arising from this suspension and will do our utmost to provide any updates which become available.
