Major leasing company deals signed

As part of the airline’s extensive growth plans, MYAirline has secured deals with a large range of world renowned aircraft leasing companies. These aircraft lessors include Aircastle, Avolon, Genesis and SMBC Aviation Capital.

Growing on the idea of the significant growth the airline expects to see this year, these lessor signings will allow MYAirline’s fleet to grow to 17 aircraft by years end.

The total cost of the fleet expansion will cost the airline 450million USD.

A groundbreaking joint venture also signed

The last of the 6 new signings made at LIMA ’23 was a new joint venture signed alongside Menzies Aviation. Menzies Aviation is a global leader in aviation services providing ground handling services for many airlines across the world.

As such this deal places MYAirline on the global stage with other airlines that Menzies is partnered with within just a matter of months since their launch in December 2022.

As part of this new signing, the 2 companies will now combine to create MYMenzies, which will become the largest ground handling service providers in Malaysia.

The aim behind the collaboration will look to provide the best passenger experiences possible and overall will operate under the Menzies Aviation brand.

“We would like to express our gratitude to our esteemed partners in the industry for their collaboration and trust in our capabilities.
