PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airlines welcomes the reopening of interstate travel, saying it will be a "fantastic boost" to businesses and people impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Its group chief executive officer Capt Izham Ismail said the airline is ready to welcome guests onboard.

"We are delighted to celebrate the relaxation of interstate travel restrictions with fully-vaccinated customers.

"We look forward to welcoming them on board with the assurance of their safety and comfort throughout their journey," he said in a statement on Sunday (Oct 10).

Capt Izham said there was healthy forward booking, reflecting customers' confidence and strong demand for travelling with Malaysia Airlines.

"We are happy that Malaysia Airlines recorded over 500% increase in our flight booking domestically – the highest booking following the reopening of Langkawi,'' he said, adding that its tour operating arm, MHholidays, also showed an upward trend.

"Malaysia Airlines remains committed to serving the nation and will be ramping up our domestic frequency to meet the strong customers' demand," he added.
