MASwings to Re-Launch as LCC


As part of the ongoing restructuring of Malaysia Airlines, regional subsidiary MASwings will be re-launched in 2015 as a low cost carrier (LCC). Over time it is expected that the company will separate from Malaysia Airlines and be reincorporated independently. In addition to the current fleet of ATR-72's and DHC-6-400's, MASwings will also bring in Boeing 737-800 equipment as part of the transition.

Domestic and rural services operated by the ATR's and Twin Otters will continue to operate under subsidies from the Government of Malaysia
