With international borders closed and much uncertainty for travellers, Malaysia Aviation Group has implemented measures so you can fly confidently. The airline group recently introduced their Fly Confidently campaign to help reduce travellers’ concerns.
Fly Confidently in the New Normal
The campaign covers all stages of the journey applicable to all the group airlines. Malaysia Airlines and the two subsidiaries Firefly based in the Peninsula, and MASwings in Sabah and Sarawak provides passengers with a new set of guidelines. The clear and concise infographic and resources can be found on each airline’s official website and social media platforms.
The core of the campaign to raise public awareness on the health and safety measures taken by the Group is a 4:21 minute video entitled Fly Confidently. This guides travellers through their journey, before, during and after they fly with departure and arrival using Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). The video features enhanced safety and public health measures by Malaysia Airlines in collaboration with Malaysia Airports Berhad (MAHB), Immigration and Customs departments at several customer touch-points.

- Immigration and Customs areas
- Golden Lounges

- baggage collection
All measures highlighted in the video comply with guidelines set by international and local regulatory bodies These include International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), World Health Organisation (WHO), International Air Transport Association (IATA), and the Ministry of Health of Malaysia (MOH),
The measures are customised to the airline’s requirements in facilitating travel under the new normal.
