KOTA BHARU: Defunct Rayani Air Sdn Bhd has been flooded with some 500 e-mails claiming ticket refunds, according to its co-founder Ravi Alagendrran.

He said he had expected to receive more than 1,000 e-mails for ticket refunds after putting up a notice on the Rayani Air official Facebook site and his Ravi Alagendrran Facebook account on July 9.

“What the company wants is for those making the claims to provide proof of purchase of tickets.

“We can find out if there is an attempt to cheat because Rayani Air still has complete data on ticket purchases,” he told Bernama here today.

He said Rayani Air will make the refunds from next month to those eligible.

Rayani Air, the first airline to be fully shariah-compliant in Malaysia, took off in December 2015 but did not last even one year.

Operating from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, it operated two planes and covered six destinations.
