MAS Commences Twice Daily KL-London Return A380 Operations

Malaysia Airlines (MAS) today commenced the twice daily A380 Kuala Lumpur-London-Kuala Lumpur services with the inaugural daytime flight MH4 departing KL International Airport (KLIA) for the United Kingdom (UK) capital at 10.45 am.

In a statement, the national carrier said this double daily was made possible after it received the third and fourth 494-seater A380 aircraft on November 19 and yesterday, respectively.

Effective today, the daytime flight MH4 will depart KLIA at 10.45 am daily and arrives at London Heathrow at 4.15 pm the same day. The return flight MH1 departs London daily at 10.00 pm and arrives at KLIA at 6.20 pm the next day.

The MH2 departs KLIA at 11.40 pm and arrives in London at 5.50 am the following day. The return flight MH3 departs London at 12.00 noon and arrives at KLIA at 7.25 am the next day.

"The double daily A380 service is part of our business plan to win back customers by gradually expanding our fleet with new aircraft featuring state-of-the-art passenger amenities.

"Complemented by our award-winning cabin staff, we are confident that such attributes will continue to drive revenue and loads, and our return to profitability," said Group Chief Executive Officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahya.

The airline also introduced a special service on the daytime A380 flight for children between the ages of five and 15, aimed at raising awareness of onboard safety in a fun way.

It said young passengers will be taken on a tour on the upper and main deck in economy class.

"The young ones will be briefed on the A380 aircraft galleys, get a chance to try out the cabin attendants' seats, life jackets and even take a peek at the crew bunk," it added.

MAS A380 is the only full service carrier to offer direct services between Malaysia and the UK, said the company, adding the new service has improved its weekly seat capacity by 37 per cent in both directions.

MAS is the eighth operator in the world of the new A380 aircraft series, and will receive its remaining two A380 by the first quarter of 2013.
