Menzies Aviation, the leading service partner to the world’s airports and airlines, has agreed a joint venture with MYAirline to establish a ground services company in Malaysia.
As part of the new partnership, Menzies will provide ground services at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) initially serving MYAirline at Terminal 2. KUL will be Menzies’ first location in Malaysia, where there are opportunities for growth and expansion as the aviation sector continues its Covid-19 pandemic recovery.
Kuala Lumpur-based MYAirline was recently established as a low-cost carrier with nine domestic routes and two international routes, which are set to launch next month to Thailand.
The entry into Malaysia complements Menzies’ existing operations in three other Southeast Asian countries including Indonesia, China-Macau and Thailand.
James Wong, senior vice president South East Asia and China, Menzies Aviation said: “We are delighted to be entering Malaysia through this new partnership with MYAirline. Kuala Lumpur International Airport is the largest and busiest airport in Malaysia and will provide an excellent base for our Malaysian operation. We’re focused on accelerating growth in the region through partnerships that will contribute to this rapidly developing aviation market and offering our global standards to deliver the safest, most secure and sustainable aviation services.”
Stuart Cross, chief operating officer, MYAirline said: “We are pleased to enter this partnership with Menzies Aviation, a globally renowned ground services company. This collaboration is of immense value to MYAirline as we strive to rebuild and revitalize the aviation market in Malaysia. By joining forces with Menzies, we are not only creating hundreds of additional jobs and opportunities but also positioning ourselves at the lowest cost base. This strategic move will enable us to maintain affordable fares for consumers, reinforcing our commitment to providing accessible and cost-effective travel options.”
