Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA – May 25, 2023
Azorra is delighted to announce that it has signed lease agreements for ten new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft with SKS Airways in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This paves the way for the airline’s exciting expansion plans at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, formerly known as Subang Airport (“Subang Airport”) strategically located near the city of Kuala Lumpur. Deliveries of the aircraft to SKS are scheduled to commence in early 2024.
“We are pleased to partner with SKS Airways on this unique opportunity to be a part of the future expansion of Subang Airport. We believe Embraer’s new technology E2 is the perfect fit for a redeveloped, premier aviation hub near the heart of Kuala Lumpur, reducing travel times and improving connectivity in the region. The E2’s fuel efficiency, carbon footprint and low noise emissions offer a transformative, environmentally conscious jet solution for the city, the region and its residents”, said John Evans, Azorra’s CEO.
Dato Rohman Ahmad, SKS Airways Director, said, “This is a significant day for the future of aviation in Malaysia. We are delighted to announce the successful signing of these agreements with leading industry players like Embraer and Azorra who share our vision for the future of air travel. With these strategic partnerships, we are excited to embark on a new phase of growth, with a fleet of Embraer’s Jets operating out of Subang. The prevalence of the E-Jets at city airports around the world and the low noise emissions of the E195-E2 makes the aircraft a perfect fit for flights in and out of Subang Airport – supporting the Government’s aim to establish Subang Airport as Malaysia’s premium city airport and aviation hub.”
