What Do The Officials Have To Say

Group Managing Director of the Malaysia Aviation Group, Datuk Captain Izham Ismail, said –

“India remains a key market for Malaysia Airlines, hence we are delighted to introduce three new routes into our Indian network, which will provide added convenience for travellers, strengthen our presence in this core market and extend our Malaysian Hospitality service even further.”

“Currently, our average load factor on this route is at 81% YTD July 2023 signifying the growth and confidence for travel between the two markets,” Ismail explained. “We are looking at restoring our pre-COVID-19 capacity back in the Indian market by the end of this year and will also look to increase flight frequencies to other destinations as we support seamless travels in Malaysia and beyond.”
