Malaysia Airlines is now officially a part of oneworld, adding one of Asia’s leading airlines to the global airline alliance that aims to be the first choice for frequent international travellers the world over. From its first flight on February 1, 2013 – MH386, from Kuala Lumpur to Shanghai Pudong – the national airline of Malaysia started offering oneworld’s full range of services and benefits. Another key focus flight for the airline was the first departure by the first of its aircraft featuring the full oneworld livery – an Airbus A330-300 operating flight MH 129 to Melbourne from Kuala Lumpur on February 1, 2013.
For Malaysia Airlines, joining oneworld completes yet another successful phase of its business plan. Becoming part of the world’s premier global airline alliance will strengthen its competitiveness, enabling it to offer customers an unrivalled alliance global network served by partners including some of the best and biggest airlines in the world. Customers benefit from expanded global network and increased competition. Malaysia Airlines, which serves more than 60 destinations in almost 30 countries, will substantially expand the alliance’s network in one of the world’s fastest growing economic powerhouses, South East Asia.
