Malaysia Airlines resuming flights

Resumption of international flights by Malaysia Airlines Bhd next month will allow families to unite with loved ones after separation due to travel restrictions in many parts of the world.

The national air carrier has increased domestic connectivity this month and will resume some of its international flights as nations begin to lift border restrictions.

“Passengers are, however, reminded to check entry and exit requirements before their journey with travel restrictions remaining in place in most countries, ” the company said in a statement.

Malaysia Airlines said it would adjust network capacity from time to time to ensure that passenger demand was met before the normalisation of domestic and international flight schedules and destinations this October.

Its chief executive officer Captain Izham Ismail said: “The airline is looking forward to welcoming passengers onboard following the resumption of services and increase in capacity.

“We shall continue to ensure their safety, health and comfort by introducing new initiatives aligned with international safety and health protocols as part of our commitment to offer passengers peace of mind throughout their journey with us.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued support and confidence in Malaysia Airlines throughout these challenging times, ” he added.

Malaysia Airlines has also released a special video on its social media platforms titled “Ready to fly and rediscover Malaysia” in conjunction with the government’s recent announcement on interstate travel.

“We hope that by showcasing unique and beautiful domestic attractions located across Malaysia, we can inspire local travellers to explore the beauty of our homeland and boost local tourism efforts, ” said Izham.
