We are Malaysia Airlines Virtual, a virtual airline for the leading mobile flight simulator, Infinite Flight, We fly guests daily on memorable journeys inspired by Malaysia’s diverse richness embodies the incredible diversity of Malaysia, capturing its rich traditions, cultures, cuisines and warm hospitality on board, while opening up more of Malaysia’s destinations than any other airline. We operate based on the real world airline, and we want to bring you the Malaysian Hospitality, through our virtual airline. With over 50 destinations and 110 routes, we are always flying the Malaysian flag. We started off in 2018 as a small group of friends that play Infinite Flight actively, communicating just through WhatsApp. Soon, as more and more people joined Infinite Flight, we found ourselves with over 20 members in our chat group. We found that we should start to take things to a new level. That was how Malaysia Airlines Virtual, with a simple aim, to help and connect fellow players from all around the world with each other to experience Malaysia, was born.
We welcome everybody to our community, regardless of where you are from. Our community consists of pilots from all around the world. We are one family. Through Slack, you’d get to interact with all sorts of people that share the same interest in just one app. As one family, we communicate and help each other. Meanwhile, our staff behind the scenes always strives to do their best to provide a pleasant and friendly environment for our pilots. We have a management system that aims to make your experience a pleasant one. Our staff are active and passionate in what they do. Not only that, they are hand-picked and well trained to handle any questions you have.
Over our 6 months of operations, our VA has accumulated over 15,000 hours of flying, 1,500+ pilot reports filed, and 40+ pilots.
Hello, and welcome to MHVA!
Thank you for taking the time to check out the Malaysia Airlines Virtual official thread. When I first joined the community in 2018, it has always been my dream to start up a virtual airline of my own. Shortly after joining the community, I originally started up a virtual organization named “Infinite Flight Alliance”, but however, due to in real life priorities, I unfortunately was not able to complete the whole approval process, and eventually dropped the idea. Fast forward 2 years later, COVID-19 struck, and I found myself back in the community, and with some time on my hands due to the situation then, I decided to continue work on “Infinite Flight Alliance”, but shortly after, I realised that the previous MHVA had shut and I “ditched” Infinite Flight Alliance and decided to form a brand new Malaysia Airlines Virtual instead. It was not easy single handedly making a crew center, website, Slack workspace and VA thread, and there were times that I wanted to give up, but I didn’t as I did not want to see all the effort I had already put in go to waste. Finally, on June 26 2020, Malaysia Airlines Virtual officially became a IFVARB approved VA. A few months later, we unfortunately experienced some setbacks, such as the crew center going up and down for over a month. However, with the help of my staff, we managed to salvage the situation by investing some money into a all in one website & crew center, which we recently launched last week. In addition, for the past 6 months of this VA’s operations, the staff team has reflected on points of interest, and we aim to eliminate major points of interest and to bring a better quality of life as a whole. As such, we have made a number of small, as well as major changes to the VA. Lastly, before I end, I would like to thank each and everyone of you, our pilots, the IFVARB and the community for their continuous support which, if it weren’t for you, we would not be where we are today.
Founder & Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
Malaysia Airlines Virtual
I’m LordWizrak, the COO of MHVA, and in short, I handle the day to day operations of the organisation. My story at MHVA started in July of 2020, joining as a pilot, and quickly rising the ranks to being a member of staff (routes manager) within 2 weeks of joining. Over time, I had performed to win an election within the VA to secure my position as COO. Understandably, I was shocked at the result given that I never thought I would be holding a position of power. Nonetheless I took it on the chin and worked hard ever since to ensure that everything benefits MHVA. My role within MHVA is not limited to just internal issues and developing new ideas for the members to enjoy, but to also expand the reach of MHVA, by forming partnerships with multiple virtual airlines that are happy to take our partnership on board. In my time as COO I have struck partnerships with Jet Airways Virtual, Air China Virtual and Finnair Virtual, and I hope that this list not only grows but becomes a testament to my work at MHVA. I hope that the word of both mine and our CEO @TheAviationGallery can persuade you to join MHVA and to help improve both your experience and others as well. As such, we are looking forward to seeing you join us and I can assure you that we will perform at our level best to create an environment suitable to nurture the best out of everyone.
Chief Operations Officer (COO)
Malaysia Airlines Virtual
I personally want to thank everyone of the staffs and crews for guiding me step by step as I was new to the VA environment, making me feel somewhat comfortable and making everything with such efforts into every small detail, and I can really see that the senior staffs and board of directors really put their hearts into MHVA. I believe that this community is toxic free and humble, and I really hope we stay together, and surpass most of the VA’s out there and firmly stand on top as a role model to them. At the pace MHVA is going, I can see them climbing to the top as one of the leading VA’s in IF for a long time.
~ @JackCheah, MHVA Pilot
MHVA is a fairly small but extremely unique and friendly community, with a lot of welcoming staff and enthusiastic members within. MHVA has offered me a lot of opportunities, from having the chance to fly all around the world realistically, a position as a PIREP manager and most importantly, working with other members to constantly improve MHVA. This VA has also enabled me to meet new people, which we have became great friends in real world, and I am proud to have over 500 flights and 5000 hours filed in this VA. To conclude, I believe that MHVA is a place to stimulate one’s passion in flying, communicating with different people from different backgrounds and continuously grow, both as a person and a team.
~ @PlaneLife2018, Former MHVA Staff
I joined MHVA less than 6 months ago when it was very new with less than 20 members. It has since grown to nearly 60 pilots in a short span of time. That says a lot about how this VA operates! The VA is fun and very progressive. From a wide range of routes, regular events to fascinating conversations in Slack, MHVA keeps you engaged and the next thing you know, you’ve logged over 1000hrs like I have. It’s been an amazing journey so far and I look forward to MHVA’s bright future!
~ @Capt_Maverick, MHVA Pilot
I have been wanting to join MHVA after I got more involved on the IFC and in IFATC. Though it is a small VA, I can be sure I have more chance to interact with the members there. With not as much members as other big virtual airlines in the community, we manage to bond together and stay connected, just discussing random stuff at times. So, if you are looking for a pool of pilots flying and having fun in your daily life via random discussion, you will definitely need to join MHVA :)
~ @Anthony_Morgan, MHVA Pilot
MHVA? It’s a really good VA. Everyone in there is excellent. Good staff, good pilots. We have amazing conversations in MHVA. Everyone is caring, and they helped me when I was extremely down. This isn’t just a VA where you just file flights, this is a family. If you want a VA that is caring, amazing, join MHVA! It’s like a little family that is growing bigger.
~ @Millard_Lee, MHVA Pilot
Here at Malaysia Airlines Virtual, our staff are dedicated to doing what they love. When you join the family, they are there to help. They are working hard behind the scenes to provide members with a fulfilling and fun time at Malaysia Airlines Virtual.

Malaysia Airlines Virtual has a wide and unique route network, and with over 3,500 mainline, subsidiary and codeshare routes, you’ll never get tired of flying with us.
Interested in knowing more about our routes and where you can fly? Click the link below to get a better understanding of our route network.
The Boeing 737-800 is a stretched version of the 737-700. It replaced the 737-400. The Boeing 737-800 competes primarily with the Airbus A320. A 737-800 seats 162 passengers in a two-class layout or 189 passengers in a one-class layout. The 737-800 features a redesigned wing with a wider wingspan and larger area, greater fuel capacity, and higher MTOWs. It was equipped with CFM56-7 series engines, a glass cockpit, and features upgraded and redesigned interior configurations. It has a longer range and larger variants than its predecessor. This makes the perfect aircraft for our short and medium hauls! At Malaysia Airlines Virtual, we have 48 Boeing 737-800 in our fleet, which seats 160 passengers, 144 in Economy and 16 in Business.
Serving the biggest megacities and smallest dream islands alike, Airbus’ A330-300 continues to please passengers and airlines around the world. As a twin-engine twin-aisle wide-body that can carry from 250 to 440 passengers, it is flexible enough to offer a range of seating options while consistently delivering high-quality comfort to all those on board. Its cabin also is one of the quietest in the skies, creating a calm environment for an entire flight. At Malaysia Airlines Virtual, we have 15 Airbus A330-300s in our fleet, which seats 290 passengers, 247 in Economy, 16 in Extra Legroom Economy and 27 in Business. *Infinite Flight currently does not have a Malaysia Airlines livery for the A330-300. Thus, we are using the Generic version. *All flights operated by the & A330-200 & A330-200F will be subbed with the A330-300
Greener, cleaner, quieter and smarter, the A380 is setting a new standard for the global aviation industry with its superior efficiency, profitability and operational effectiveness. The A380 is a modern icon that has flown over 500,000 revenue flights carrying over 190 million passengers. At Malaysia Airlines Virtual, we have 6 Airbus A380s in our fleet, which seats 486 passengers, 412 in economy, 66 in business, and 8 in business suite.
Infinite Flight currently does not have the Generic/Malaysia Airlines livery for the A330-200F. Thus, all routes flown by the A330-200F will be subbed with our A330-300.
The Boeing 777’s unique combination of superior range, outstanding fuel efficiency and passenger-preferred comfort has created long-range success for carriers around the world. And the 777-300ER now gives operators a perfect opportunity to extend that success. Recent upgrades further reduce costs and boost revenue, and the 777’s flying experience is still number one with passengers. A more profitable fleet and more satisfied passengers. That’s a better way to fly. The Boeing 777-200ER, played a big part in Malaysia Airlines’s history and was the backbone of Malaysia Airlines. It was retired in 2016.
The growing worldwide demand for air travel during the 1960s led to the development of the 747, the first “Jumbo Jet.” Merely recalling the early days of the 747 program “brings sweat to the palms of my hands,” Boeing’s then-president, William Allen, said years after the giant aircraft had been developed. Requiring the company to risk much of its net worth, the development of the world’s largest passenger aircraft was a formidable undertaking. The 747 is one the most recognizable aircraft in the world and represents a milestone in the evolution of aviation design. The Boeing 747-400 was also a big part of Malaysia Airlines. It was replaced by the Airbus A380-800 and retired in 2012.
McDonnell Douglas MD-11
Deliveries of the MD-11, a wide-cabin trijet, began in 1991 and ended in 2001. The MD-11 was 18.6 feet (5.6 meters) longer than the DC-10 trijet, from which it was derived, and carried about 50 more passengers. It was produced in Long Beach, Calif. A worldwide network of subcontractors and suppliers supported the assembly line.
Bombardier Dash 8 Q400
Bombardier Aerospace’s Dash 8 family of turboprop regional airliners includes the 37-passenger Q100 and Q200, the 50 to 60-passenger Q300 and the 70 to 80-passenger stretched Q400. The newest member of the Dash 8 family, the Q400, had its first flight in 1998 and entered commercial service in February 2000.
The Q400 Dash 8 airliner was developed by Bombardier to meet the requirements of regional airlines for larger aircraft on high-density, short-haul routes. The 350k Q400 airliner is one of the world’s quietest turboprop aircraft. The noise and vibration suppression system (NVS) was introduced on the Dash 8 turboprop family in 1996.
Note: As the ATR-72 is not available in Infinite Flight, the Dash 8 Q400 will be the acting aircraft for it.
The Boeing 737-800 is a stretched version of the 737-700. It replaced the 737-400. The Boeing 737-800 competes primarily with the Airbus A320. A 737-800 seats 162 passengers in a two-class layout or 189 passengers in a one-class layout. The 737-800 features a redesigned wing with a wider wingspan and larger area, greater fuel capacity, and higher MTOWs. This makes the perfect aircraft for our short and medium hauls!
The Daher TBM is a family of high performance single-engine turboprop business and utility light aircraft manufactured by Daher. The design of the TBM family originates from the Mooney 301, a comparatively low-powered and smaller prototype Mooney developed in the early 1980s.
Note: As the ATR-72 and Twin Otter is not available in Infinite Flight, the TBM-930 will be used in its absence.
While pilots fly our wide range of routes and aircraft, we also have a exciting ranking system in place. As you climb up the ranks, you will be able to fly more aircraft in our fleet and explore more regions, as well as unlock codeshare routes and aircraft. Log PIREPs actively and you will soon find yourself a Commander Captain! Reached Commander Captain already? It doesn’t end there. We give out awards weekly to pilots who continue logging hours even after they’ve reached the highest rank, and each award has it’s own benefit. We also have awards such as “Pilot of the Bi-Week” where we award pilots every 2 weeks who file the most amount of hours with us for the past 2 weeks to thank them for being a dedicated member of Malaysia Airlines Virtual.

The Malaysia Airlines fleet consisted of many iconic aircraft, such as the Boeing 747-400. They played a big part in Malaysia Airlines’s operations, and this is why we decided to introduce Heritage Routes. Our historic fleet includes the Boeing 737 (historic variant, Boeing 737-800 acting as it), McDonnell Douglas MD11, Boeing 777 and Boeing 747. Here at Malaysia Airlines Virtual, we have more than 1,000 heritage routes for you to fly, from airports such as the iconic Kai Tak airport.
Malaysia - Singapore Airlines Joint Venture
A short view back to the past, when Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines were yet to go their separate ways, Malaysia-Singapore Airways was the national carrier for these two countries, and being the national carrier, had exquisite routes to various countries such as Greece and Bahrain. As such, Malaysia Airlines Virtual has partnered up with @Singapore_Virtual to bring back historic Malaysia-Singapore Airlines routes, which our pilots love. This allows for a more in-depth partnership with an airline that Malaysia Airline shared so much of its history with.
VIP Charter Program
Malaysia Airlines has had many flights chartered by third parties to ferry passengers to and from various places, such as Subang Airport to Beirut International Airport with the MALBATT charter. In line with this, these routes are to be operated at a higher rank due to the exclusivity. This would allow our pilots to have a sense of realism, being able to recreate many charter routes which are flown for various number of reasons.
Former Pilot Report Manager, @PlaneLife2018, offered to host a TBM Tour in conjunction with MHVA. These tours will include tours of Malaysia, Southeast Asia, as well as East Asia, taking pilots to undiscovered regions of the continent as well as showing pilots the nature and beauty of these various parts of the continent.
Flights to Nowhere
In light of current circumstances around the world, we have taken this opportunity to afford pilots the option with set routes from our hub at Kuala Lumpur to fly around Malaysia and Southeast Asia to visit monuments, islands and more. We hope that this would also give our pilots an opportunity to fly to parts of this region which we think deserves more attention than it currently gets.
Ultra-Long Haul Routes
MHVA is proud to have ULR routes to North, Central and South America direct from our hub, Kuala Lumpur International Airport, utilising the B777-200ER and A350-900. Malaysia Airlines had great ambitions in the mid 1990s, and even going so far as to have been in talks with Boeing for an order with 50 B777-200LR. Unfortunately, this deal failed to carry forward with the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, but we feel that it is only appropriate to make Malaysia Airline’s dream come true, be it in one way or another. However, even though this route is operated by the A350-900 and B777-200ER, we would like to reserve these routes for the highest rank in our VA due to its exclusivity and elegance, which Malaysia Airlines was well known for.
Malaysia Airlines Aircraft Delivery Program
Just like any other airline, Malaysia Airlines often takes delivery of all sorts of aircrafts. Here at Malaysia Airlines Virtual, we have a delivery program where pilots can fly from delivery airports to our main hub at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
Malaysia Airlines Aircraft Retirement Program
While airlines take delivery of aircraft, some aircraft are unfortunately retired. Here at Malaysia Airlines Virtual, we have a aircraft retirement program where pilots can fly from our main hub, Kuala Lumpur International Airport to the retirement airport.
Malaysia Airlines Aircraft Maintenance Program
Every aircraft has to be properly maintained to ensure that they are fit to fly with airlines. Therefore, we offer maintenance routes here at Malaysia Airlines Virtual, where pilots fly to and fro from Kuala Lumpur to the maintenance airport.
Our website represents who we are. It is a important part of Malaysia Airlines Virtual and it keeps us going. It also boasts a sleek looking design and contains everything you want to know about us. Meanwhile, our website also serves as a crew center for our pilots. Our crew center is a place where you can file Pilot Reports, bid for a flight, Search our flights, view a pilot brief before you take off, or even generate flight plans through the crew center itself! All these in just one website, how simple is that?

A Virtual Airline is never complete without events! We conduct events almost daily, ranging from short haul to long haul events, with event leaders leading each specific event. We also partner up with multiple Virtual Airlines to conduct such events! When you participate in our event, you will get up to a 10x multiplier for the event flight, which will enable you to rank up faster! We do hope that by introducing daily events, this will bring more activity in Malaysia Airlines Virtual as well as a good opportunity to bond with pilots over events. Currently, Malaysia Airlines Virtual offers a event attendance system to pilots who regularly attend our event:
|Status||Attended at least||Unlocks|
|Bronze||10 events||1.1x multiplier on top of multiplier given for the specific event. (eg, 1.5 x 1.1)|
|Silver||20 events||Priority in Events, 1.25x multiplier on top of multiplier given for the specific event. (eg, 1.5 x 1.25)|
|Gold||30 events||Pick a route for events, 1.5x multiplier on top of multiplier given for the specific event. (eg, 1.5 x 1.5)|
Malaysia Airlines Virtual is proud to be partnered with many different airlines. This enables pilots to discover new regions, as well as fly a diverse fleet of routes and aircraft. Our codeshare routes are constantly updated, in line with all real-world Malaysia Airlines’s operations.
As of December 2020, we are partnered with the following virtual airlines:
|Air China Virtual||Air France - KLM Virtual||British Airways Virtual||Dubai Virtual (Emirates)||Etihad Virtual|
|Finnair Virtual||Qatar Airways Virtual||Singapore Virtual||Thai Virtual||Turkish Airlines Virtual|
|Surfair Virtual||United Virtual||Korean Virtual|

Malaysia Airlines Virtual is proud to be the founding and leading virtual airline of the brand new OneWorld Virtual.
OneWorld Virtual is a virtual alliance founded by @TheAviationGallery back in August 2020, with a aim to connect OneWorld virtual airlines through codeshares and events. OneWorld Virtual was originally started by British Airways Virtual Airline and American Airlines Virtual but the owner, Harry, eventually became inactive. In June 2020, the Infinite Flight Virtual Airline Regulatory Board (IFVARB) approved us, the new OneWorld Virtual to start operations again, this time with new goals and board members.
OneWorld Virtual hopes to launch new joint series of events soon, which will feature the hubs of OneWorld VAs.
