Malaysia Airlines to introduce more routes to China

Malaysia Airlines is currently reviewing its flight destinations with the intent of introducing more routes to various places in China.

MAS currently fly to six places in China: Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Kunming and Xiamen, but now plans are in full swing to reintroduce four weekly flights to Macau adding to the already existent 63 flights to China.

Managing Director Datuk Seri Idris Jala said: “It is never easy to just fly into any destination but a thorough study must be carried out first like what we did in Macau.

“Another integral part is to ensure we have proper logistics to support our business expansion,” he said, adding that MAS had ordered 20 new aircraft to cater to its subsidiaries, Firefly and MasWings.

MAS are at present trying to boost their position as one of Asia's premier airlines.

The next targeted destination will be India, MAS already flies to Chennai, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore & Hyderabad and already has a code share with Air India.

In China they code share with Cathay Pacific (Hong Kong-Kuala Lumpur/Hong Kong-Penang) and Dragon Air (Hong Kong-Kota Kinabalu).
