The flag carrier is resuming routes to international destinations and increasing frequency ahead of the upcoming reopening of Malaysia’s borders.

Beginning on March 27, Malaysia Airlines will increase the frequency of its flagship Kuala Lumpur-London route to 11 times weekly and will return to full double daily service with effect from July 1.

The flag carrier also announced that it will be reinstating scheduled services to India, with destinations including New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, and Hyderabad, after close to 24 months’ suspension of these routes due to border closures between the two countries.

Also starting April 1, Malaysia Airlines will increase the flight frequency to popular destination Bangkok from seven times weekly to 14 times weekly and to Phuket from once a week to three times a week. This increase is in response to Thailand having recently relaxed entry requirements for fully vaccinated international travellers.

Though by no means yet ramped up to pre-pandemic levels, Malaysia Airlines has also resumed flying to Bali, Indonesia with a once-a-week flight, which took effect on March 11.

Fully vaccinated customers travelling to Singapore, meanwhile can continue to take advantage of the Vaccinated Travel Lane flights from both Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

Finally, for passengers heading Down Under, Malaysia Airlines is bumping up its recently reinstated flights to Australia from five times weekly to seven times weekly to Sydney and from two times weekly to five times weekly to Perth.

With expectations of increased demand, the airline is also reopening its Golden Lounge at the satellite building in KL International Airport, which will take place on April 1.
