New Malaysian airline launches with CSeries deal

Airline to improve air travel around Malaysian Peninsula
A new privately held Malaysian airline plans to buy 20 Bombardier CS100 aircraft for US$1.5 billion (€1.4 billion), and is considering doubling it to 40 planes for US$2.94 billion, in the first order in Southeast Asia for the Canadian manufacturer’s long-delayed CSeries.
The airline, called flymojo, is to be based at Senai Airport, Johor, near Singapore. A letter of intent was announced at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace show this week.
Years of delays and budget overruns have hampered the development of the CSeries. The CS100, which seats up to 125 people, started test flights in 2013.
The Malaysian government supports the new airline, saying it will improve air travel between the Malaysian Peninsula and other parts of the region.
