Malaysia Airlines has revealed the future of the contactless journey for their passengers, detailing some of the innovative features soon to be introduced. These features are a response to travellers’ expectations for seamless, hygienic and safe travel in the new normal.
This latest initiative follows the airline’s recent introduction of the Digital Travel Health Pass, currently under development. The Pass will help passengers enjoy a safe and streamlined journey as global travel resumes.
The contactless features set to transform passengers’ journey start from home from the point of booking, with creation and customisation of bookings including selection of:
- preferred meals
- other services
through integration of enhanced features on Malaysia Airlines’ mobile app.
Enjoy your contactless journey
Check out their short video titled “Experience a contactless journey with Malaysia Airlines” on their social media platforms. The video showcases upcoming features to be implemented during departure and arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
The contactless journey will see the Biometric Facial Recognition technology taking over several boarding procedures and verifications of travel documents. This forms part of its enhanced Fly Confidently campaign, offering a hassle-free and contactless check-in, security clearance and boarding processes.

Upon arrival into Malaysia, passengers can expect a safer and hygienic journey with the installation of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection technology at KLIA, before reaching the baggage carousel.
