Malaysia Airlines opens access to more travel destinations via codeshare with Qatar Airways
KLIA, 15 January 2020: Malaysia Airlines is pleased to announce that it is offering more seamless one-stop connectivity between Kuala Lumpur to several major cities in Europe through the expansion of its codeshare agreement with Qatar Airways, a partner airline in the oneworld alliance. All codeshare services will be marketed as Malaysia Airlines flights thus simplifying ticketing to one document issued by the national carrier.
Malaysia Airlines already offers fares to Doha, Qatar via an existing codeshare agreement with Qatar Airways and Malaysia Airlines passengers will have the opportunity to book seats to an additional 12 destinations with one-stop connectivity such as Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich, Vienna, Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, Geneva, Copenhagen, Brussels, Athens, and Oslo effective 27 January 2020.
Through an existing codeshare agreement with Qatar Airways, Malaysia Airlines passengers have been able to book travels to 10 US-based destinations such as Boston, New York, and Dallas.
According to Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Executive Officer, Captain Izham Ismail: “Malaysia Airlines is delighted to further develop and grow our relationship with Qatar Airways with this codeshare agreement. Through this cooperation, we will be able to provide travel options for our outbound travelers as well as inviting more travelers to experience the beauty Malaysia has to offer. We look forward to sharing our Malaysian Hospitality further and provide a truly Malaysian experience for our passengers.”
Qatar Airways passengers will be able to book Malaysia Airlines flights to two additional destinations in Malaysia - Sibu and Alor Setar, as well as two destinations in Indonesia - Medan, and Surabaya.
According to Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker: “Since 2001, both airlines have witnessed the significant benefits codeshare cooperation have brought, providing passengers with unrivalled service and seamless connections. The expansion of codeshare cooperation between Qatar Airways and Malaysia Airlines is a natural next step in the strengthening of our close partnership.”
