Malaysia Airlines resumes flights to wider international destinations

Malaysia Airlines is set to welcome passengers to Fly Malaysia and enjoy full-service offerings following the gradual reopening of borders around the world, with increased capacity to selected international routes within its network.

In anticipation of increased passenger volume, its Golden Lounge at the Satellite building in KL International Airport will also reopen on 1 April 2022.

Starting 27 March 2022, Malaysia Airlines will increase frequency to its flagship Kuala Lumpur-London route to 11 times weekly and will return to full double daily service from 1 July onwards.

On the same date, the national carrier will be reinstating scheduled commercial services to India, namely New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, and Hyderabad, after close to 24 months suspension due to border closure between the two countries.

Starting 1 April 2022, Malaysia Airlines will increase capacity 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 flight, beginning 11 March 2022.

Fully vaccinated customers travelling to Singapore can continue to enjoy the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) 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 from five times weekly to seven times weekly to Sydney and from two times weekly to five times weekly to Perth following a steady demand for travels on the Australasia region.

With Malaysia Airlines’ Satellite Golden Lounge fully opened soon, 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 flight.

All the airline’s lounges follow stringent health and safety measures, mandatory use of face masks and disposable gloves at the buffet area, and regular sanitisation of common areas.
