Did you hear? A brand new airline was just launched in Subang Jaya a few days ago, called MonSpace Sky Airline.
Operated by Suasa Air Sdn Bhd and owned by Dr Jessy Lai’s MonSpace Group, the private airline is reportedly operating from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and will be running domestic flights to Langkawi, Kedah.
According to Galaksi Media Online, the new carrier will also be operating international flights to Mecca and also several places in Mainland China, including Hangzhou, Chongqing, Xi-An and Chengdu, soon. On its web page, MonSpace Sky Airlines claims to be “one of the largest private airline in Malaysia”, owning “the largest fleet of Boeing 737 and 747”.
Local celebrity Shila Amzah (who just became airline’s ambassador) and Hong Kong celebrity, Maria Cordero, were also at the launch ceremony to show their support. Both artistes were invited to experience their first rides to Langkawi with MonSpace Sky Airlines.
Despite the star-studded event, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said that he had no clue about this MonSpace Sky Airlines. “I have not heard of this airline,” he was quoted telling The Star. In fact, the airline was not even approved by Putrajaya.
He went on to explain that although “the Department of Civil Aviation had only approved the Air Operator’s Certificate for the chartered Suasa Air, it could not operate yet because it had not obtained an Air Service Permit to transport passengers.”

Another startling news also revealed that MonSpace used to represent Zhang Jian, a Chinese national who made headlines back in 2014 when huge signboards of himself proclaiming to be “the future richest person in the world” were put up in Penang. He was then forced to leave Malaysia after the Government cracked down on his marketing scheme.
Let’s just hope that this isn’t going to be another hot mess like Rayani Air.
