Malaysia Airlines will soon count Darwin among its Australian destinations.
Launching November 1st, the route initially closed in 2002 has been reinstated to provide passengers, particularly those travelling from the UK, easier access to Australia’s Northern Territory.
Darwin’s return to the network means that Malaysia Airlines will now serve a total of seven destinations across Australia and New Zealand.
UK travellers will also be able to discover the Top End of Northern Australia via a double daily A380 service from London Heathrow direct to Kuala Lumpur followed by a connecting flight to Darwin.
Between Kuala Lumpur and Darwin, the national carrier will operate a five times weekly service on the new and improved 160-seater Boeing 737-800.
The aircraft provides a premium travel experience with a configuration of 16 business and 144 economy seats, including on-demand in-flight entertainment system for every seat.
Malaysia Airlines UK & Ireland area manager Yuzrizal Mohd Yousuf said: “We are really pleased to provide exciting new services to our growing client base.
“Operating across key Australian destinations is an important part of our offering and the Darwin route will enable our passengers to fly directly to the Northern Territory.”
