Malaysia Airlines Bhd said on Tuesday it has increased capacity to selected international routes within its network, following the gradual reopening of borders around the world.
The national carrier said in a statement that starting from March 27, 2022, it will increase the frequency of its flagship Kuala Lumpur-London route to 11 times weekly and will return to full double daily services from July 1 onwards.
On the same date, the national carrier will be reinstating scheduled commercial services to various destinations in India, namely New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad, after close to 24 months’ suspension due to border closures between the two countries.
Starting from April 1, Malaysia Airlines will also increase its capacities to Bangkok from seven times weekly to 14 times weekly and to Phuket from once a week to three times weekly. This comes after Thailand recently relaxed entry requirements for fully vaccinated international travellers.
Additionally, Malaysia Airlines has begun flying to Bali with once-a-week flights, beginning from March 11, 2022.
Fully vaccinated customers travelling to Singapore can continue to enjoy the Vaccinated Travel Lane scheme from Kuala Lumpur and Penang, providing them with ease of quarantine-free access.
Meanwhile, the recently reinstated flights to Australia will also see an increase in frequency to seven times weekly to Sydney and to five times weekly to Perth following a steady demand for travels in the Australasia region.
In anticipation of increased passenger volume, Malaysia Airlines said its Golden Lounge at the Satellite building of Kuala Lumpur International Airport will also be reopened on April 1, 2022.
With Malaysia Airlines’ Satellite Golden Lounge fully opened soon, it said customers can expect the reimplementation of buffet-style serving, offering convenience for guests to browse and indulge in a diverse range of local and Western delicacies prior to their flights.
