Malaysia Airlines, Commercial Director, Dr Hugh Noel Dunleavy said, “We see great potential in Dubai. Dubai is a tourism, trade and logistics hub which has earned itself the reputation as being the gateway between the east and the west.
“Home to just over 2 million people of more than 200 nationalities, Dubai is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. With world-class shopping and leisure facilities, Dubai is a popular destination for business and leisure.
“As we expand our network we want to prepare our products and services to serve our guests better each time they fly us. Our focus is ultimately customer satisfaction.” he said. Dunleavy added.
