Malaysia Airlines was named Indonesia’s Leading ASEAN Airline at the 8th Indonesia Travel Tourism Awards 2017/18 recently. Featuring an impressive list of travel brands across the Indonesian tourism industry, the airline was among 160 nominees across over 50 categories.
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.”
