Malaysia Airlines re-opens their Domestic Golden Lounge at KL International Airport (KLIA) from 29th October 2021. The move comes following the steady growth in passenger volume and strong demand for lounge offerings following the relaxation of interstate travel ban and the upcoming year-end holidays. The airline’s two other flagship lounges at the Regional and Satellite terminals will be reopened in stages, after having been closed for more than a year in line with the no dine-in rule imposed since the first Movement Control Order in Malaysia.
Deepavali at the Domestic Golden Lounge
The re-opening of the Domestic Golden Lounge is timely as Deepavali, the Festival of Lights is just around the corner. The Lounge will serve a celebratory menu featuring Chicken Biryani and assorted traditional Indian delicacies from 29th October until 4th November 2021. Guests can also look forward to their favourite meal from a wide array of authentic Malaysian cuisine. On offer will be nasi lemak, chicken congee, laksa, Malay kuih-muih and assorted desserts as well as teh tarik and barista style coffee. All are freshly prepared and made available through a contactless digital meal ordering service at the lounge.
