KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) employees are expected to be fully vaccinated by mid-August this year following its participation in the Industry Vaccination Centre Programme at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

In a statement, Malaysia Airlines said a total of 5,150 vaccines have been allocated for MAG's Kuala Lumpur-based employees including those in Malaysia Airlines, Firefly, Amal, MASkargo and AeroDarat.

Employees comprising technical and cabin crew as well as customer-facing staff will be receiving their first dose of the Sinovac Covid-19 vaccination between July 6 to 23 and a second dose by mid-August.

A similar programme is being planned for its employees based at Penang International Airport.

"As an organisation that puts its employees’ safety, health, and wellbeing as priority, the Group is pleased to participate in the Industry Vaccination Centre (PPVIN) Programme at KLIA.

"MAG has introduced the enforcement of the MAG Vaccination Policy as part of its ongoing commitment to ensuring a safe environment at the workplace, and this includes making COVID-19 Vaccination compulsory for all MAG employees," said MAG group CEO Izham Ismail.

He added that almost 90% of the 1,200 MAG employees in Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan have been vaccinated in collaboration with the Distric PPV Programmes.

Another 1,200 MAG employees in Peninsular Malaysia have also obtained their first does through District PPVs.

"Vaccination plays a vital role in the restart of domestic and international air travel and tourism. We remain steadfast in our commitment to adopting the highest safety and hygiene standards in air travel," said Izham.

To further support the nation’s biggest COVID-19 immunisation drive, MAG continues to mobilise its employees from across the Group to volunteer at several mega vaccination centres namely Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil and KL Convention Centre.
