KLIA, 8 July 2020: As Malaysia Airlines, Firefly and MASwings take to the skies once more in the new normal, airlines under the Malaysia Aviation Group unveiled the 'Fly Confidently' campaign, to raise public awareness on the health and safety measures taken by the Group.

As part of the Group-wide campaign, Malaysia Airlines today released a 4:21 minute video entitled Fly Confidently, Fly Malaysia on its social media platforms showcasing its passengers on their journey for departure or arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

It details a step-by-step walkthrough of a passenger journey from home with contactless check-in via our mobile app or website, followed by the enhanced safety and health measures we have adopted at the airport and on board our flights.
