Start-Ups Young Malaysian start-up FlyGlobal plans to expand its fleet
The young Malaysian airline FlyGlobal, a Charter wet lease/ACMI operator, has announced plans to expand its existing fleet by up to ten Boeing 777-200ER by 2021. FlyGlobal’s CEO Shami Law stated the aircraft should be leased to different interested companies.
Currently the small carrier operates a fleet of two former Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777-20 of which one is wet-leased to the Saudi-Arabian carrier Nesma Airlines. The aircraft commenced operations between Kuala Lumpur and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia in November 2017. All jets are configured with a one-class cabin for 406 passengers.
“We are very pleased to be operating our Boeing 777-200ER, 406-seater passenger capacity aircraft, on behalf of Nesma Airlines. And assisting our Malaysian pilgrims in their journey to Makkah and Madinah truly is a privilege,” said Shami Law.
FlyGlobal was founded in 2016 and commenced operations in July 2017. The start-up wet leased its aircraft to its launch client Biman Bangladesh Airlines. In the future, the charter company wants to focus on wet-lease contracts on the Asian and Middle Eastern charter market.
