Malaysia’s flag carrier Malaysian Airlines is set to begin flying to three new destinations in China, all starting in June.
According to industry website airlineroute.net, the carrier opened reservations for the new routes last week and Business Traveller Asia-Pacific has confirmed the routes are currently being offered for booking.
The three routes from Kuala Lumpur to Nanjing (June 13), Wuhan (June 20) and Fuzhou (June 26) will each operate three times weekly and will be flown using Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Malaysia Airlines configures its B737-800s in a two-class layout, with business class seats in a 2-2 configuration and economy class in a 3-3 set-up.
Details of the flights are as follows (all times local):
Kuala Lumpur (KUL)-Nanjing (NKG):
|MH532||KUL||NKG||1705||2230||Tue, Thu, Sun|
Kuala Lumpur-Wuhan (WUH):
|MH515||KUL||WUH||1835||0005+1||Tue, Thu, Sat|
Kuala Lumpur-Fuzhou (FOC):
|MH358||KUL||FOC||1005||1445||Mon, Wed, Fri|
The new routes closely follow the recent loyalty partnership between Malaysia Airlines and Regal Hotels International, announced earlier this month. Members of the airline’s Enrich frequent flyer programme can earn 600 miles for eligible stays at Regal Hotels properties and 300 miles at Iclub hotels in Hong Kong and mainland China.
