KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Malaysia's first Islamic-compliant airline has been suspended for three months after it failed to adhere to aviation regulations, a senior official said on Monday (April 11), as the government announced a safety audit of the carrier.
"Rayani Air has been suspended for three months," Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, director-general of the Department of Civil Aviation, told AFP.
"They contravened civil aviation regulations," he said, declining to elaborate.

Rayani Air not likely to fly again, says report

PETALING JAYA: Suspended Rayani Air is unlikely to take to the skies again, reported business daily The Malaysian Reserve today.
This is because the Shariah-compliant airline has missed a deadline to set its financials in order, the report said.
Quoting industry sources, the report noted the airline has still not found a new investor nor has it proven to the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) that it has a sound business structure to reclaim its suspended Air Operating Certificate (AOC).
“The airline had racked up massive backlog of unpaid salaries, payments to suppliers and lease payments that would be impossible to overcome without a fresh injection of capital from a new investor,” said the report.
