A Conditional Air Services License (ASL) was issued to SKS Airways by Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) on the 1 March 2019. The Airline is tentatively scheduled to be launched sometime in fourth quarter of 2019. SKS Airways is a commercial airline serving domestic short-range leisure, commuter and charter flights. Our operation is mainly focused on popular island-based resorts, coastal resorts with connections to major cities within Peninsular Malaysia; serving the needs of popular island resorts owners and tour agencies that provide holiday packages to domestic and international tourists keen on spending their holidays on these well-established and popular resorts. SKS Airways will be offering affordable fares and convenient flight schedules.
SKS Airways will be adopting a ‘hybrid’ business model where the airline has a low-cost business strategy but provides some service features from a full-service airline. Our aim is to have low operating costs so that any savings can be passed on to customers for more competitive ticket price.
SKS Airways shall initially operate using four DHC6 Twin-Otter. These aircraft are deemed reliable in providing alternative air transportation especially to the remote island resorts which are only accessible via surface or boats. SKS Airways will be collaborating with major tourism industry players in developing attractive and affordable holiday packages to suit your holiday requirement.
