Menzies Aviation has established a joint venture with MYAirline to create a ground services company in Malaysia.

The new partnership will see Menzies 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. The entry into Malaysia complements Menzies’ existing operations in three other Southeast Asian countries – Indonesia, China-Macau and Thailand.

James Wong, senior vice president south east Asia & 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.”

Kuala Lumpur-based MYAirline was recently established as a low-cost carrier with nine domestic routes. Two international routes, connecting Malaysia and Thailand, are set to launch next month.
