Emirates has introduced an additional daily flight to Kuala Lumpur from its Dubai base, taking the total number of weekly services to the Malaysian capital to 21.
The extra service was launched in the wake of increased demand from passengers and Emirates’ commitment to serving the Malaysian market.
Richard Jewsbury, the carrier’s senior vice president of commercial operations in the far east and Australasia, said the rise in demand had been from both business and leisure passengers.
"We are now offering further access to numerous Emirates destinations around the world," he explained.
"The triple-daily flights will benefit our customers, stakeholders and our business while boosting Malaysian tourism, underscoring the country’s role in Emirates’ far east network."
Mr Jewsbury went on to say that the airline’s partnership with Malaysia began in 1996 with the launch of flights to Kuala Lumpur via Dhaka.
Yesterday (February 1st), Emirates began twice-daily flights to Rome from the Dubai, with the 12 weekly service complimenting existing routes to Milan and Venice.
