Malaysia’s flyGlobal Charter, a wet lease/ACMI aircraft operator, began operating flights between Kuala Lumpur and Jeddah on behalf of Nesma Airlines of Saudi Arabia, on 23rd November 2017.

The Umrah flights will be carrying pilgrims booked through Nesma Airlines’ GSA in Malaysia, Alfajr Travel & Tours Sdn Bhd.

“We are very pleased to be operating our Boeing 777-200ER, 406-seater passenger capacity aircraft, on behalf of Nesma Airlines,” says Shamini Law, Chief Executive Officer at flyGlobal Charter.

“And assisting our Malaysian pilgrims in their journey to Makkah and Madinah truly is a privilege,” she adds.

In July earlier this year, flyGlobal wet leased its first B777-200ER aircraft to its launch client, Biman, the national flag carrier for Bangladesh, over the Hajj period.

The Malaysian charter operator will service other wet lessors and charterers, focusing on the Asian and Middle Eastern charter and wet lease markets.

flyGlobal is a Kuala Lumpur-headquartered charter and wet lease operator using Boeing 777 aircraft for its main fleet.

“flyGlobal will expand its B777 fleet to ten (10) aircraft by 2021. These aircraft will be wet leased to various operators, says Shamini Law, Chief Executive Officer.
