Malaysia Airlines adds flights to selected international destinations from 1st July and adds extra domestic services in June 2020. This will facilitate essential travel locally and offer limited international connectivity as other countries begin to lift border restrictions. The announcement is contingent on Malaysia also relaxing its own international border controls.
The airline will adjust its network to match passenger demands, prior to normalizing the schedule in October for both domestic and international destinations.
Travellers must check entry and exit requirements before their journey as travel restrictions remain in place in most countries.
