The real reason Rayani Air went kaput

The real reason Rayani Air went kaput

Ravi Alagendrran and Karthiyani Govindran, non-Muslims who raised eyebrows when it was revealed that they were the founders of pioneering Rayani Air, may have thought it would be a cinch to handle a shariah-compliant airline. Their assumptions have come crashing down to earth. Launching operations out of Langkawi just four months ago, Rayani Air became one of only 4 shariah-compliant airlines in the world and touted itself as a carrier which offers assurance to Muslim travellers (many of whom were still shaken by the three airline catastrophes which shook the Malaysian aviation industry in the space of one year).

Malaysia’s Islamic airline Rayani Air barred from flying

Malaysia’s first Islamic-compliant airline, Rayani Air, has been barred from flying for breaching regulations. The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) said it was revoking the airline’s certification because of concerns over its safety audit and administration.

Why Hostels Aren’t Just For Students and Backpackers

When going on vacation, the cost of accommodation while you are away is one of the biggest drains on your budget. It would seem that no matter where you go in the world, hotels are always expensive places to stay – leaving you less money for enjoying yourself and having fun. Yet most of us cling to the concept of hotels as clean, enjoyable places to stay – and book ourselves in despite the cost. On the flip side, the word ‘hostel’ is one that triggers terrifying images – and not just because of the horror film of the same … Continued
Be Spontaneous With A Surprise Holiday

Be Spontaneous With A Surprise Holiday

The concept of a ‘surprise’ holiday may be unpleasant to some; after all, isn’t half the fun of a vacation looking forward to going there? Maybe it is, but if you hanker for something a little spontaneous and fun, then a surprise holiday might just work for you. The ‘surprise’ aspect of a surprise holiday does not come from a sudden decision to go on holiday, but rather where you go.
