The Malaysian short-range leisure, regional, commuter, and charter airline SKS Airways (SKS) officially went live on the ameliaRES Passenger Service System (PSS) on January 6th 2022.
The airline’s partnership with InteliSys will help them to open various sales channels to boost revenue and ensure streamlined airport operations. InteliSys is also working with SKS to grow their cargo services and help sell competitive vacation packages to the airline’s customers. SKS will provide many services in their market including: short-haul, point-to-point flights, direct online sales, airport and travel agency sales channels, and limited in-flight frills and add-on ancillary sales.
"As Malaysia’s newest airline, we are eager to take on new challenges and are agile and able to tap into any opportunities that arise. We are excited to be working with InteliSys who will offer our airline all of the necessary features we need in a PSS and more as we grow. InteliSys has a strong presence in Asia and we are happy to be partnering with them as we position ourselves to capitalize on the current pent-up demand for domestic travel and expand our services to Southeast Asia and China.” - Rohman Ahmad, Director of SKS Airways
SKS Airways’ mission is to provide a safe, fast and efficient domestic and commuter services operation and on January 25th 2022, the airline took to the skies for the first time on flight KI 6357 departing from Subang Airport to Pangkor, a northern tax-free island, becoming the first carrier to operate scheduled commercial flights to the island. SKS Airways will use its fleet of DHC-6 Twin Otter turboprops to provide domestic services around Malaysia and the surrounding islands including Redang Island and Tioman Island. As the airline grows, SKS plans to expand its network to Southeast Asia and Southern China.
"We are very proud to have SKS Airways join the amelia family. SKS has found a niche market that should prove very successful for them. Trying to start an airline throughout COVID was a challenge but SKS was able to work through it, which shows the perseverance and know-how of this great group.
The ameliaRES PSS and DCS systems used by SKS have ensured that the airline team is operating very efficiently. These systems provide SKS with the tools to best manage their sales, revenue and passengers. We value the partnership of SKS and InteliSys, and this is only the beginning. We look forward to helping SKS Airways grow with their current amelia tools as well as the new offerings we will work with them on in the near future."
