Malaysia Airlines would like to advise passengers to arrive two hours prior to departure for domestic travels and three hours for international flights in anticipation of long queues during the check-in and boarding process especially during school holidays and festive seasons. Alternatively, passengers may also check-in in advance via the airline’s website www.malaysiaairlines.com or MHmobile.

Passengers who fail to check-in before the stipulated check-in time will be required to have their tickets reissued. The airline will not be able to accept late check-ins or boarding to ensure that flights depart on time.
