KUALA LUMPUR: MYAirline Sdn Bhd surpassed an engineering milestone today, clocking 6,000 hours of safe flying six months since the start of its operations in December 2022.
It said the milestone was a testament to the hard work and dedication of the engineering team in ensuring safety and comfort of passengers while reinforcing its commitment to safety.
"Records show that our fleet of seven aircraft undergoes 959 maintenance checkpoints daily. Even before taking off Kuala Lumpur International Airport Terminal 2 (KLIA2) each morning, an aircraft must pass 117 checkpoints from the approved preflight maintenance checklist," the airline said in a statement today.
It noted that there has been also a periodic maintenance checklist that covers 149 itemised items on an aircraft.
"MYAirline's Engineering division, aptly named Continued Airworthiness Maintenance Organisation is subject to stringent compliance and oversight activities by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM), making it assuredly safe for passengers," it said.
Meanwhile, MYAirline chief executive officer Rayner Teo said the airline has demonstrated a solid support structure to build growth by having passed four audits by industry regulators and conducting more than forty on the suppliers since December.
On the current load factors, he said the airline has been recording a network average load factor of 92 per cent, thanks to the strong demand and support.
" As of today, we have surpassed the 800,000th passenger mark and we will reach our one million passenger milestone very soon.
"Hence, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of safety and reliability for all our passengers, and achieving this engineering milestone reflects that commitment," he said.
He added that MYAirline remains at the forefront of the industry, ensuring the highest standards of safety for its passengers with the continuous advancement of safety measures, innovative technology, and a dedicated team of professionals. -- BERNAMA
