Rayani Air.

Rayani Air is a Malaysian start-up that plans to commence operations in Jan-2015 from its hub at Malacca Batu Berendum Airport to the domestic destinations of Penang, Langkawi, Kota Baharu, Kuching, and Kota Kinabalu. The 'boutique airline' intends to assist in increasing leisure traffic to Malacca, a state heavily dependant on the tourism industry. Rayani Air then hopes to expand to provide regional services to centres such as Surabaya, Yogyakarta and Medan. The start-up will reportedly receive support from the Malacca State Government in the form of compensation if there is a shortfall in passengers on the airline's services. Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron however ruled out the idea of taking an equity stake in the airline. Rayani Air plans to operate Fokker 50 turboprop equipment.

Rayani Air is the latest local Malaysian airline that will be operating out from the Melaka International Airport (MKZ) somewhere late in Q4 2014. This project which has not much information apart that they already have an official Facebook and Twitter page is quite interesting to see how a new airline is going to enter the now challenging budget airline industry on Malaysia. From reading the Rayani Air Facebook page, we understand that Rayani Airline will fly from Melaka to Kota Baru (Kelantan), Langkawi (Kedah), Penang, Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) and Kuching (Sarawak) but again, no other available information on flight dates, prices and so on.
An inaugural flight for Rayani Air is supposed to take place somewhere in August 2014 too. As for the aircraft Rayani Air is using, it looks like a former MAS Boeing B737-400 plane with seat configuration of a single class with 169 seats.The current ‘Tag Line’ for them is also – Rayani Air – Come Let’s Fly while the contact address for the company is in Shah Alam, Malaysia.
Currently, only this information is obtained while there is much speculation going on about who owns the airlines, is it a joint-venture with an Indonesian businessman, is the former Melaka chief minister involved in this and so on. Therefore, until further information is gathered, we can still continue to speculate but we at Airline News Asia will publish whatever concrete news that makes the mainstream media when it comes out.
