Airline steadily increases its reach and capacity
Malaysia Airlines’ inaugural commercial flight to Dubai took off from KL International Airport late last night. The flight left after a simple send-off reception attended by passengers and the airline’s top management.
“We see great potential in Dubai,” Dr Hugh Noel Dunleavy, Malaysia Airlines’ commercial director, said. “Dubai is a tourism, trade and logistics hub which has earned itself the reputation as being the gateway between the east and the west.”
MASholidays, the airline’s travel and tourism arm, is also offering “two exclusive yet incredibly affordable tour packages” to Dubai in conjunction with the launch, taking guests to experience several iconic landmarks including the Burj Khalifa.
Malaysia Airlines has been steadily growing its reach and capacity in the past year. Its regional footprint has also deepened with increased frequencies to key business and leisure cities around Asia and the network is being expanded both through code share agreements and its membership in the oneworld airline alliance since February this year.
