In a Bursa Malaysia filing on Friday, MMAG said its subsidiary MJets Air Sdn Bhd — previously M Jets International Sdn Bhd — had accepted a letter of award (LOA) from Malaysia Airlines Bhd, a subsidiary of Malaysia Aviation Group Bhd (MAG).

"Further to the appointment, the parties agree to enter into an agreement on the scope of charters and other conditions within 60 days from the date of the LOA, and until such time as the said agreement has been formalised and executed by the parties," MMAG noted.
