Malaysia Airlines today commenced its inaugural A350-900 service from Kuala Lumpur to London with a send-off ceremony at KL International Airport (KLIA).
Kuala Lumpur, 27 September 2017: Malaysia Airlines today provided further clarification on its fleet strategy, following its previous updates on the matter.
Malaysia Airlines fleet strategy is a key component of the ongoing five-year 12-point MAS Recovery Plan (MRP) unveiled on 29 August 2014, which calls for the resetting of the airline’s operating business model towards a competitive cost position, with a focus on the network and revenue management.
At a special briefing for the media held today, Malaysia Airlines Chairman Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof said: “The airline business is extremely complex and dynamic where there is often a mismatch between readiness and opportunity, where readiness to expand does not often coincide with appropriate and available aircraft and available customers does not automatically mean available landing rights. Airlines have to be agile in order to balance this.”
