]Malaysia launches first Sharia airline
Rayani Air is to comply with Islamic law, with an alcohol ban and halal food on services from Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and other Malaysian destinations
Malaysia’s first Sharia-compliant airline launched flights on Sunday, following the tenets of Islamic law that ban alcohol, allow only halal foodstuffs, and require women to cover their hair.
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 obliged to wear the hijab, the Islamic headcarf.
"It is compulsory for our Muslim women cabin crew to wear hijab and for non-Muslims to wear a decent uniform”, Mr Zamhari said, according to local news outlet Astro Awani.
"We also recite doa [prayers] before the departure of each flight we have a 'no-alcohol' policy, and we provide food and beverages that are halal."
