Malaysia Airlines, Malaysia's flag carrier,[1] traces its origins back to 1947, when Malayan Airways Ltd. was jointly formed by Singapore's Straits Steamship Company and the Ocean Steamship Company of Liverpool; the carrier was registered in Singapore and was set up for linking several cities within Malaya, as well as to provide an air connection with British Borneo, Lower Burma and Siam.[2] On 1 May 1947 (1947-05-01), the newly formed airline started scheduled operations with a single Airspeed Consul,[3]:362 linking Singapore-Kallang with Kuala Lumpur and Penang, and Kuala Lumpur with Kota Bahru and Kuantan.[4] By 1948, the domestic route network comprised Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Singapore, Kota Bahru and Kuantan, whereas international flights to Batavia, Bangkok, Medan, Saigon and Palembang were also operated.[3]:363 In May 1949 (1949-05), Malayan Airways took over the Singapore–KuchingLabuanJesselton route, which had been operated by the Royal Air Force since May 1946 (1946-05) and was the only air link between Singapore and Borneo;[5]:147 the run was extended to Sandakan in October the same year.[6] In early 1950, the route network was 6,504 miles (10,467 km) long.[7]

Following federation, Malayan Airways was renamed Malaysian Airways in November 1963 (1963-11).[8] On 14 May 1966 (1966-05-14), the airline officially became the national airline of Malaysia and Singapore, jointly operated by both countries.[9][10] The company was re-christened again on 1 January 1967 (1967-01-01),[11] this time to Malaysia-Singapore Airlines Ltd (MSA).[12] By that year, Comets were deployed on the Kuala Lumpur–Singapore route, and also from services radiating from these two cities to Bangkok, Hong Kong, Manila, Perth and Taipei; Comets were used on selected domestic routes too.[13] A year later, by April 1968 (1968-04), Jakarta and Sydney were already incorporated into the international route network, with the Singapore–Jakarta–Perth–Sydney service using a Boeing 707 that was leased from Qantas,[14] and by April 1969 (1969-04) Tokyo was included as well.[15] The inauguration of services to Colombo and Madras were announced in April 1970 (1970-04) for commencement in June that year;[16] flights to these two cities were operative by May 1971 (1971-05).[17]
