From March 27th, Malaysia Airlines will increase its non-stop flight capacity from London Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur International Airport by almost 70,000 seats.
Malaysia Airlines, the country’s primary carrier, will resume 11-times-weekly service till June 29th.
From June 30th forward, a full return to a double daily service will be implemented.
This would greatly enhance the number of flights available for travellers ahead of the much-anticipated opening of the Malaysian border on April 1st.
This comes just in time for Easter and the start of the European summer, and it builds on the recent relaxation of Covid-19 limitations in the UK and Europe.
It also aligns with other south-east Asian countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam, which have all announced a reduction of entrance criteria for fully vaccinated international visitors.
This enhanced capacity provides greater options for better connections across Europe and Asia Pacific and will allow customers greater freedom to fly on the dates that suit them best.
Malaysia Airlines is looking forward to welcoming passengers on board with its unique Malaysian hospitality.
Daniel Bainbridge, regional director UK & Europe, commented: “The further increase in capacity of over 70,000 seats is a top priority for Malaysia Airlines on our flagship route and we remain the only non-stop carrier between London and Kuala Lumpur.
“We now eagerly await the opening of Malaysian borders on April 1st for travellers who we know have been wanting to visit and look forward to welcoming them back onboard with our signature Malaysian hospitality.”
