SKS Airways (KI, Johor Bahru) has said it will launch scheduled operations "sometime in December 2021", two years later than originally planned.

The Malaysian start-up received its Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) on October 1, while its conditional Air Services Licence (ASL) has been extended through February 28, 2022. The carrier is in the process of converting its provisional permit to a full one before launching scheduled operations (a permanent ASL is not required for charter services).

SKS Airways has yet to outline specific schedules or launch dates but said on its website that it would focus on scheduled, commuter, and charter services connecting resort islands off the coast of peninsular Malaysia. According to a route map posted online, services include connecting Kuala Lumpur Subang with Pangkor, Pulau Redang, and Tioman, as well as Johor Bahru with Tioman.

SKS Airways intends to launch with at least two DHC-6-300s. In total, it owns four aircraft of the type, although the other two remain in storage at Bern airport, the ch-aviation fleets module indicates.
