Twice daily Malaysia A380

Malaysia Airlines will launch double daily Airbus A380 flights on its Kuala Lumpur – London operation from 24 November 2012, increasing the weekly seat capacity by 16%, from 5,971 to 6,916 in each direction.

This double daily service will be inaugurated after the national carrier receives another two of the six A380s by the end of this month.

Malaysia Airlines’ Group CEO Mr Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said, “Ever since our A380 operations commenced on the London-Kuala Lumpur – London route from 1 July this year, the customer response has been overwhelming. Encouraged by the success of our current daily A380 operations on this route, we have decided to replace the existing B747 daily flights with the A380 to make it double daily on the superjumbo. This initiative is also part of our efforts to standardise our product offering on this popular route for oneworld customers when we join the alliance by early next year”.

The national carrier of Malaysia will also commence daily A380 operations to Paris next March to replace the current B777 daily services on this route. www.malaysiaairlines.com
