KLIA, 28 September 2019: Malaysia Airlines, yesterday, was once again recognised as one of themost trusted brands in the region when it received the Platinum Award at the 2019 Putra Brand Awards in the Transportation, Travel & Tourism category held at the Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

The Putra Brand Awards is an annual premier brand awards event in Malaysia that was launched in 2010 by the Association of Accredited Advertising Agents Malaysia (4As) in association with the Malaysia’s Most Valuable Brands (MMVB). It recognises brand building as an integral business investment, measured by consumer preference. In determining its winners, the Putra Brand Awards utilises a robust consumer research method in which 6,000 consumers vote for their favourite brands within multiple categories, therefore establishing Malaysian consumers themselves as the judges and award-givers of this distinguished event.
