Malaysia gains flymojo as newest airline

MALAYSIA today saw the launch of a new carrier, flymojo, which will be based out of Johor Bahru and Kota Kinabalu.

Speaking at the launch of flymojo at he Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace (LIMA) 2015 exhibition, Aziz Kaprawi, deputy minister of transport: “With flymojo’s primary hub at Senai International Airport, Johor and secondary hub in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, the airline’s ultra-modern fleet of CS100 aircraft will play a key role in improving connectivity between the Peninsula and Sabah and Sarawak, as well as other parts of the region.

“In addition, as the only airline utilising the Southern Corridor as its headquarters, flymojo will transform Senai into a key regional aviation and logistics hub – augmenting the government’s initiatives in developing Iskandar Malaysia and the Southern Corridor,” he added.

“Further strengthening Kota Kinabalu’s standing as a gateway into Malaysia, flymojo will also boost tourism into Sabah and Sarawak.”

Flymojo is expected to be the first customer and operator of the CS100 aircraft in the region upon execution of its firm purchase agreement with Canadian company Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.

Both parties signed a Letter of Intent for the sale and purchase of 20 CS100 aircraft, with options for an additional 20, at the LIMA 2015 exhibition.
