Previously, we shared how the federal government is planning to provide subsidised flight tickets for Malaysian university students between Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia.

Lo and behold, the initiative is now live, with eligible students entitled to an RM300 subsidy for flights.

It comes with a rather apt name too: FLYsiswa. Accordingly, the Ministry of Transport (MOT) announced the details of the programme, as well as procedures on how to apply for the RM300 subsidy.

Read on below to find out more about FLYsiswa.

The announcement for the initiative was first announced back on 12 July, with the implementation officially taking place beginning yesterday (15 August).

The RM300 subsidy is for Malaysians studying in public universities in our country, with the applicable flight tickets being for domestic routes between Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah, Sarawak and the Federal Territory of Labuan.

Specifically, the RM300 flight subsidy is for Malaysian students studying at a local public university in the 2022/2023 academic year starting 30 June 2023 under the following categories:

  • Students from Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan (according to their permanent address) who are studying in Peninsular Malaysia
  • Students from Peninsular Malaysia (according to their permanent address) who are studying in Sabah, Sarawak or Labuan.
  • Students from Sabah (according to their permanent address) who are studying in Labuan
  • Students from Sarawak (according to their permanent address) who are studying in Labuan
  • Students from Labuan (according to their permanent address) who are studying in Sabah or Sarawak

To check whether you’re entitled to the subsidy, do visit MOT’s official portal for FLYsiswa here.

If the portal confirms that you are entitled to the initiative, you can then proceed to apply for the RM300 subsidy via any one participating airlines, namely Malaysia Airlines (inclusive of MASwings and FireFly), AirAsia, Batik Air and MYAirline via the airlines’ respective websites.

Conversely, should the portal show that you’re not entitled even though you should be, you can lodge an appeal with the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) via your university.


Once you’ve submitted the application and it is received by the respective airline, the latter would then produce a digital voucher worth RM300 to you via a “credit shell” that can be used to purchase flight tickets.

If the flight ticket price is less than RM300, the shell credit would remain under your account and can be used to purchase other flight tickets.

Do note that the last date for claiming the subsidy is 31 December 2023. However, you can still purchase flight tickets after that date if you’ve already claimed the voucher.

Awesome! So, what do you guys think of the FLYsiswa initiative? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
