SKS Airways is a Malaysian regional, leisure, commuter and charter airline founded in 2017 and began services in 2022. The airline was the first of two new airlines to begin operating in Malaysia in 2022 - the second being ultra-low-cost MYAirline which has now successfully launched. SKS Airways aims to link Malaysian cities which are currently unserved or underserved to other cities and island destinations across the country. The airline is headquartered in Johor Bahru with its hub of operations being Senai International Airport. The airline operates a fleet of DHC6-300 Twin Otter aircraft for these regional routes with plans to further grow and offer international services.
Other than offering flights, SKS Airways offers travel packages, called SKS Xplore, in partnership with a variety of tourism-focused partners.
There are different baggage policies for each type of baggage - Carry-On or Checked.
SKS Airways allows all passengers to bring 1 item of cabin baggage on board the aircraft with them. This must fit the airline's maximum dimensions of 23cm x 33cm x 33cm and not exceed 3kg.
You are also allowed to bring 1 item of checked luggage with you. However, due to the size of the airline's aircraft, these should weigh less than 7kg. If travelling with an infant you are allowed to bring a collapsable buggy weighing up to 7kg plus one checked case being smaller than 115cm and taken as additional hand luggage.
The airline only offers an economy class product onboard their aircraft, with all passengers receiving the same seat and onboard service. However, the airline offers 2 ticket types available for purchase on all flights 'SKS Lite' and 'SKS Plus'. Passengers on an SKS Lite ticket are entitled to the airline's baggage policy and receive their reserved seat upon checking in for the flight. SKS Plus passengers receive the same benefits as Lite customers as well as Sky Lounge access on departures from Kuala Lumpur Subang Airport.
SKS Airways offer its passengers the option to check-in online before they arrive at the airport or alternatively, check-in at the airport.
SKS Airways does offer online check-in facilities via its official website. The airline opens check-in 24 hours prior to departure. If travelling with checked luggage simply head to one of the airline's check-in desks at the airport to drop it off if checked in online.
The airline offers airport check-in facilities which open 1 hour 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time. The airline also states that they will shut these facilities 30 minutes before departure.
Currently, SKS Airways doesn't offer complimentary drinks and snacks onboard and a purchasable service is not provided. We recommend bringing snacks with you or purchasing these after security before your flight.
As the airline operates small regional aircraft personal inflight entertainment and wifi facilities haven't been installed. An inflight magazine may be provided but we recommend that you bring your own entertainment to keep you occupied during the flight.
As of February 2022, SKS Airways operates to only 4 destinations within Malaysia, including:
