Malaysia Airlines Celebrates Christmas with Passengers

Sepang, 23 December 2012 : Malaysia Airlines, in its efforts to reflect the spirit of 1Malaysia during festivities, today engaged travellers at KL International Airport (KLIA) in its unique Christmas Showtime 2012.

Malaysia Airlines Showtime is a series of events that focus on festive celebrations such as Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Puasa, Merdeka, Deepavali, Christmas and New Year.  The initiative is to extend the national carrier’s trademark Malaysian Hospitality to travellers at KLIA.

The Christmas Showtime started with giveaways to passengers boarding flights to various destinations such as Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Melbourne, Sydney, Paris and London.

A group of Christmas carollers for the Assumption Church of Petaling Jaya joined Malaysia Airlines in this Showtime effort with passengers. The group of more than 30 carollers brought a lively and festive ambience at KLIA where the spirit of Christmas was truly felt by one and all.

Apart from the Showtime, Malaysia Airlines will delight passengers on its selected international flights departing KLIA from 24 to 26 December with specially created Christmas in-flight menu. The cuisines will be served in all classes, featuring traditional favourites, including roast turkey with chestnut stuffing and cranberry jelly as well as a Christmas log cake.

The national carrier has made the festive experience even more memorable with unique foldable e-cards available online at for guests to send to their Christmas wishes to their loved ones. With adorable characters like Remy the Reindeer, Uncle Santa or Snowman Sam to choose from, the origami-like foldies are sure to delight both the young and old and double up as the perfect Christmas memento.

Malaysia Airlines conveys its Merry Christmas and season’s greetings to all its customers and wishes everyone the very best for 2013.
