Malaysia Aviation Group


Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) is a global aviation organisation with subsidiaries and equity investments organised into four distinct business segments: Air Transportation Services, Ground Services, Aircraft Leasing and Talent Development. This group structure was created to drive better transparency and focused management across the respective operating subsidiaries, creating profit centre subsidiaries of the company’s separate businesses.  This ensures profit and loss accountability and unlocks the value of the various assets by driving better operational efficiency.

Apart from ensuring better transparency and governance, the business segments will have flexibility to explore collaborative opportunities for raising capital, making the subsidiaries more competitive and responsive, thus strengthening our position in the market.

The largest contributing segment of the Group is our Air Transportation Services which houses Malaysia Airlines Berhad, Firefly and MASwings, network carriers serving the global and domestic markets and all passenger segments.
