KLIA, 25 October 2021: Malaysia Airlines is delighted to announce the re-opening of its Domestic Golden Lounge at KL International Airport (KLIA) beginning 29 October 2021. The airline's latest move comes after a steady growth in passenger volume and strong demand for lounge offerings following the relaxation of interstate travel ban and the upcoming year-end holidays.
Its two other flagship lounges at the Regional and Satellite terminals will be reopened in stages, after having been closed for more than a year to abide by the no dine-in rule imposed since the first Movement Control Order in Malaysia.
The re-opening of the Domestic Golden Lounge is timely in conjunction with the upcoming Festival of Lights that comes with a celebratory menu featuring Chicken Biryani and assorted traditional Indian delicacies that will be served from 29 October until 4 November 2021. Guests can also look forward to their favourite meal from a wide array of authentic Malaysian cuisine including nasi lemak, chicken congee, laksa, Malay kuih-muih and assorted desserts as well as teh tarik and barista style coffee, freshly prepared and made available through a contactless digital meal ordering service at the lounge.
Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer Lau Yin May said, "We are delighted to reopen our Domestic Golden Lounge after a strong pick up in travel domestically and we are expecting further increase in demand with the upcoming year-end school holidays and festivity. We welcome guests to once again immerse themselves with our premium and warm Malaysian Hospitality before their flight. During the hiatus we worked on making significant improvements to ensure everyone's safety is in accordance with the new normal.
Our team continues to ensure that all measures are aligned and in full compliance to international best practices and recommendations, leading to the lounge's reopening. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued support during this challenging time and we look forward to welcoming all of you onboard again, offering our signature experience featuring authentic Malaysian cuisine and Malaysian Hospitality for the comfort and wellbeing of our guests," added Yin May.
The Domestic Golden Lounge will operate daily from 6am to 5pm subject to flight schedules and will adhere to the following operating guidelines in line with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health, Malaysia (MOH):
