I heard this airline operates from Ipoh (Sultan Azlan Shah Airport) when I watched Berita Nasional at TV1 on 3 Jan 2010. Currently this airline make a partnership with Riau Airlines for Ipoh - Medan - Ipoh Sector. What I heard during the news, this airline will expanding in near future will purchase aircrafts which might included Airbus A320, ATR72 and a corporate jet.

IPOH, Aug 21 (Bernama) -- Another new low cost carrier, Silverfly Sdn Bhd with the cooperation of Riau Airlines is expected to make its maiden flight serving the Ipoh-Medan-Ipoh route beginning this September 9.

Datuk Bandar of Ipoh, Datuk Roshidi Hashim in announcing this, said that the air service was a proactive move taken by the state government to bring about benefits and facilities to the people in the state.

"The Silverfly air services will certainly bring a lot of benefits for the people as it involves three flights weekly, namely Monday, Friday and Sunday," he told reporters after officiating the MATTA Perak Travel Fair 2009 here Friday.

He earlier witnessed the signing of a joint flight service agreement between Silverfly and Riau Airlines.

Roshidi said the the flights will also activate the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport here and promote tourism activities between the two countries.

Meanwhile the Regional Manager of Silverfly Sdn Bhd, Eddy Azuan Sidik, said that the flights will cost RM369 for a two-way trip and RM259 for one way travel.

The airline will be using the Fokker-50 which has a 48-passenger capacity, while the flight from Ipoh to Medan has been scheduled at 12.30 pm.

yeah, silverfly is leasing berjaya air's ATR to mount charter flights IPH-TGG. That's why you see both silver fly and berjaya air logos on the aircraft. Its the same like what silver fly is doing for IPH-MES charter flights using riau air's F50 aircraft.

I personally spoke to the owner and he said the load factor was initially poor but improved with increased public awareness. What the owner did was to "build the market" which is a good business strategy but one must be patient and be able or willing to absorb the initial losses

the aircraft are wet leased from berjaya and riau air ...

I understand the owner is planning to set up its own airline with its own AOC, pilots, cabin cew, etc. If and when that happens, there'll be jobs available...But the owners pocket must be deep...
