As travel restrictions around the world are gradually lifted, Malaysia Airlines has unveiled plans to expand its domestic operations and resume international flights in July.
The airline has said that it will adjust its network capacity from time to time before normalising the schedule in October for both domestic and international destinations.
Passengers are strongly advised to check entry and exit requirements of the country they wish to visit before purchasing their ticket.
Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Executive Officer Captain Izham Ismail said, “We are pleased to announce the resumption of our services by increasing capacity to domestic and international routes and we look forward to welcoming our passengers back onboard. We shall continue to ensure their safety, health, as well as their 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.” Malaysia Airlines has implemented various COVID-19 safety measures including temperature checks, sanitisation and disinfection of all properties and facilities, enforcement of social distancing, mandatory usage of face masks and the installation of protective screen barriers at check-in counters and transfer desks at KL International Airport (KLIA).
All Malaysia Airlines frontliners on ground and onboard are required to wear personal protective equipment and their health is screened daily. Even upon arrival, passenger luggage will be sanitised.
These health and safety precautionary measures will also be extended to the Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounges which is scheduled to re-open on 1 July.
Inflight dining has been modified to limit contact between cabin crew and passengers, whilst other inflight services such as reading materials and inflight duty-free remain suspended.
Passengers are urged to perform online or mobile check-in to reduce interaction and avoid queues at the airport, especially those travelling on domestic and regional routes.
