Malaysia Airlines is expanding its presence in the Middle East with the addition of Doha to its network.
Starting May 25, the Kuala Lumpur-based airline will launch daily flights between Kuala Lumpur and Doha-Hamad Airport. The daily service will use Airbus A330-300 aircraft equipped with 290 seats – 27 Business, 16 Premium Economy, and 247 Economy seats.
The new service will be the third destination the airline will operate flights to Middle East, joining its current flights to Jeddah and Madinah. Customers will be able to make connections onto Qatar Airways-operated flights via Doha to destinations in the United States, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
“In light of the continued easing of travel restrictions across the globe, Malaysia Airlines' new route to Doha is an excellent opportunity to expand our network and offerings while significantly connecting the ASEAN markets with the Middle East region and beyond. As we strive to become Asia's Leading Travel and Aviation Services Group, this new service marks another milestone in the airline network's expansion plan,” Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Executive Izham Ismail said in a statement.
