“People are travelling more, and Malaysia Airlines is strengthening our footprint across Asia and beyond in response to these market needs,” said MAS group CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya at a press briefing in Kuala Lumpur.

Just recently, MAS launched flights to Dubai and Kochi (India) and increased capacity and frequencies to Bandar Seri Begawan and Medan.

MAS’ passenger traffic had increased since the start of 2013. Seat loads increased to 83.3 per cent  in July 2013, which was an increase of 9.1 per cent year-on-year.

Kochi became a new destination in September, and flights to Darwin in Australia will start in November. MAS also said there was an 11 per cent increase in capacity into and out of Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei. It added a third daily frequency from Kuala Lumpur to Medan on September 15, making it 6,720 seats weekly in and out of Medan.

Double daily operations from Sydney will be increased with four more weekly flights, increasing it to 18 flights per week from November 21.
