Malaysia Airlines’ A380 to go daily at London Heathrow

Malaysia Airlines’ A380 to go daily at London Heathrow

From the August 14th Malaysia Airlines will operate daily non-stop A380 flights between London Heathrow and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) as its second Airbus superjumbo joins the fleet.

This comes six weeks after the airline celebrated the launch of its inaugural A380 service, which operated three times per week on this route.

Malaysia Airlines’ A380 flight MH3 departs Heathrow daily at noon and arrives in KLIA at 07:35 the next day.

The inbound flight departs KLIA daily at 11:40 and arrives Heathrow at 05:50 the following day.

The double-decker Airbus A380 is not only the largest aircraft in the skies - offering passengers unparalleled levels of comfort in spacious surrounds - but this superjumbo is also the most eco-efficient plane around.

The aircraft burns 17 per cent less fuel per passenger when compared to other large aircraft.

The A380 has a capacity of 494 seats with 350 economy and eight fully flat first-class seats on the main deck, and 66 fully flat business class and 70 economy seats on the upper deck.

The unique selling points of Malaysia Airlines’ A380 include the widest first-class seats of any plane in the skies at 40 inches and the introduction of the gourmet ‘Chef-on-Call’ service - currently available in First Class - to all business-class guests at the end of September.

This service, which allows passengers to order their desired dish prior to departure, raises the bar in in-flight dining.

Malaysia Airlines is considered Asia’s Leading Airline by the World Travel Awards.
