Non-Muslim couple start Malaysia’s 1st halal airline


A non-Muslim couple from the UK launched Malaysia’s first Sharia compliant airline recently.

Rayani Air’s first service, from the capital Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi, a popular holiday destination, followed rules the company will adopt on all flights, which will see prayers recited before take-off, a ban on in-flight alcohol, and Muslim air stewardesses wearing headcarves.

A UK-based Sharia-compliant flight company, Firnas Airways, is also planning to launch in 2016. – Agencies
