MYAirline (Z9, Kuala Lumpur International) has secured an air operator's certificate (AOC) from the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM). The permit is valid from October 1, 2022, to September 30, 2023, and is an important step towards starting flight operations.

The Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) has also issued a conditional air service licence (ASL) that is presently approved through to December 31, 2022, but the regulator is yet to transition that licence from its conditional status to a current status. Incorporated in January 2021 with paid-up capital of MYR2 million ringgit (USD436,824), MYAirline's shareholders include Zillion Wealth Bhd (88%), Trillion Cove Holdings Bhd (10%), and Rayner Teo Kheng Hock (2%).

More recently, MYAirline has taken delivery of its first A320-200s, with 9M-DAC (msn 5661) leased from Aviation Capital Group and 9M-DAG (msn 4088) and 9M-DAB (msn 4126) having arrived from lessor Aircastle.

With the AOC locked in, ch-aviation has approached MYAirline regarding a start date and initial routes, however, no spokesperson was available for comment before publication.
