KLM and Malaysia Airlines have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a view to strengthening the connection between the airlines’ hubs in Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur.
In a statement released today, the two carriers said they will “further strengthen the excellent collaboration they experienced over the past 11 years”, with the aim of offering “greater connectivity, better schedules and more choice for their passengers”.
Commenting on the move KLM’s Chief Executive Officer Peter Hartman said:
“This Memorandum of Understanding will strengthen the connection between the two hubs: Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur. This partnership is an ideal opportunity to expand the number of Australasian destinations we offer our customers. Malaysia Airlines enjoys a deserved reputation for consistent and high quality service, both on the ground and in the air, and so is a natural partner for KLM.”
Both carriers currently offer daily flights between Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur, with codeshare agreements already in place on both services.
