Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) has mobilised 80 employees from across the Group to help out in Malaysia’s largest COVID-19 immunisation drive. The volunteers known as MH Rangers, are Malaysia Airlines and Firefly cabin and flight crew as well as employees from other MAG subsidiaries.

The volunteers will be helping at two of the mega vaccination centres in Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil and KL Convention Centre from 7th to 18th June 2021. Volunteers are tasked with non-medical duties across various touchpoints. These include handling crowd management, announcements and registration.
The MH Rangers programme offers all MAG employees an opportunity to participate in various voluntary roles in different situations. This programme prioritises volunteers who have received or registered for the COVID-19 vaccination themselves. Volunteers prepared for their role during a briefing session led by the organiser on 5th June 2021.
Four team leaders took part in simulations at both venues on 6th June 2021 in the presence of the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, YB Khairy Jamaluddin.
…. We are honoured to play our part in supporting the Government ensure the smooth rollout of vaccines at the first two MPPVs by being the first corporation to respond and send our trained volunteers. When the organisers approached us for assistance, we never hesitated and quickly rallied our employees to participate. Group CEO of Malaysia Aviation Group, Captain Izham Ismail
He added that over 220 employees across the Malaysia Aviation Group signed up for the programme in the first few days. He was gratified to see that despite the challenging year, the Group’s employees are still in high spirits to go above and beyond their call of duty.
Izham also acknowledged…
…. This act of giving back and dedication to supporting the community truly reflects the Malaysian Hospitality.
Malaysia Aviation Group have already stepped up during the Covid-19 pandemic. Earlier this year Malaysia Airlines was involved in the successful operation of transporting the vaccines from China and Singapore (from Belgium) to Malaysia.
If you’re scheduled for vaccination at either of the two stations, look for assistance by MAG volunteers. They’re easily identified in their MAG branded yellow neon safety vest.
