Malaysia Airlines will codeshare on Emirates’s four times daily service to Dubai from Kuala Lumpur from February 15th, 2016 as part of the partnership between Malaysia Airlines and Emirates which was signed early December 2015.
The flights offered by Malaysia Airlines from Kuala Lumpur to Dubai will therefore increase from one to four daily, although all flights will be operated on Emirates aircraft. The new codeshare will enable customers seamless and convenient connections to Emirates’ more than 90 global destinations. This includes 38 destinations in Europe on a daily and even double daily basis for key European cities such as Paris, Rome, Munich, Frankfurt, Madrid, and Barcelona; as well as Canada and Latin America.
The partnership will also see the Malaysia Airlines and Emirates frequent flyer programmes aligned, giving customers expanded opportunities to earn and redeem points. The details of the benefits will be shared progressively over the next quarter. The service to Dubai will be operated three times a day on the Boeing 777 and once a day on the Airbus 380.
The partnership focuses on building seamlessness for our passengers to enable strong connectivity to Malaysia Airlines’ network to Malaysia / South East Asia and the Emirates network to Europe, Middle East, Canada, Latin Americas and Africa.
Malaysia Airlines’ Chief Executive Officer Christoph Mueller said, “The partnership allows our guests to travel seamlessly to major cities around the world whilst enjoying increased loyalty reward through our loyalty programmes. We will be able to offer Kuala Lumpur as a hub to connect to South East Asia and Dubai for connections to Europe, Middle East and North and South Africa. This arrangement will offer guests a wider network of destinations at greater convenience.”
Malaysia Airlines will be suspending its Kuala Lumpur-Dubai route by 15 February and will re-accomodate passengers on its codeshare flights with Emirates.
