Malaysia Airlines increases capacity to Australasia

Malaysia Airlines continues to grow its reach and capacity to a host of destinations across Australasia, following the launch of the airline’s highly anticipated new route to Darwin, capital of the Northern Territory in Australia on 1 November. More flights to more destinations throughout the region make Malaysia Airlines one of the leading carriers servicing Australia and New Zealand from the UK.

UK passengers can now enjoy a four times weekly service to Darwin, flying from London Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur on the double-daily A380 flight before a quick transit onto the new and improved 737-800 aircraft to complete their journey.

As well as broadening its reach throughout the country, Malaysia Airlines is also increasing frequency from Kuala Lumpur to key Australian destinations. Flights from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney will increase to 21 weekly from 5 February 2014 and flights to Melbourne increased to triple daily from 21 November 2013.

Flights from Kuala Lumpur to Auckland, New Zealand also on the A330 aircraft increased from six times weekly to a daily service from 24 November and will be permanent effective 30 March. 

“We have seen increased demand for travel to destinations throughout Australasia,” said Weng Chi Lee, Malaysia Airlines’ Area Manager UK & Ireland. “Malaysia Airlines is investing in new and existing routes to meet this demand and we look forward to welcoming UK and Irish passengers to enjoy our flights down under.”

With the inclusion of Darwin, the national carrier now flies to a total of seven destinations across Australasia. Flights to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth via a seamless transition onto the A330 aircraft, complete the growing group of Australian destinations served by the national carrier.

Malaysia Airlines offers UK passengers some of the best connections to Australia and New Zealand flying on the latest aircraft with a generous baggage allowance of 30kg in economy and service from an award-winning Cabin Crew.
