MALAYSIA - Malaysia Airlines is on an expansion mode with capacity and frequency increases regionally and new destinations internationally.
"In the recent weeks, we launched flights to Dubai and Kochi and increased capacity and frequencies to Bandar Seri Begawan (Brunei) and Medan (Indonesia). Soon, we will be flying more often to Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne, as well as putting Darwin back in our network map", says Group CEO, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya.
"People are travelling more, and Malaysia Airlines is strengthening our footprint across Asia and beyond in response to these market needs", added Ahmad Jauhari Yahya.
Malaysia Airlines has seen a steady increase in passenger traffic since the start of 2013 matching the added capacity. Seat loads have also improved, registering 83.3 per cent in July 2013, equivalent to a 9.1 per cent increase from the previous year.
Malaysia Airlines recently celebrated the reinstatement of its Kuala Lumpur - Dubai service in August 2013. Kochi, in south India, became its new destination in September. Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory is the Malaysian national carrier's new destination in November 2013.
