Malaysia Airlines flies into new era with Emirates

Airline uses Emirates network to boost connectivity
Malaysia Airlines has launched a major new codeshare partnership with Emirates. The extensive agreement sees Malaysia’s struggling national carrier using Emirates’ network to expand its services to Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas.
Malaysia Airlines now codeshares on Emirates’ four daily flights between KL and Dubai, then onwards to more than 90 global destinations in the Dubai-based carrier’s network.
These include 38 destinations in Europe, initially including Stockholm as well as Rome, Paris, Zurich, Geneva, Madrid and Barcelona. More will be introduced gradually in the coming weeks as regulatory approval is obtained.
Malaysia Airlines’ own KL-Dubai flights are now suspended.
“The Malaysia Airlines and Emirates codeshare is an integral part of our future network plan as we focus on getting our customers connected globally,” said Paul Simmons, Malaysia Airlines’ CEO.
