Emirates and Malaysia Airlines today unveil new routes and frequent flyer benefits as part of their codeshare agreement to provide customers seamless connections and world class travel experiences, across the globe.
The new routes cover 15 key Malaysian cities: Langkawi, Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuching, Miri, Bintulu, Sibu, Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Tawau, Labuan, Alor Setar, Kota Bharu, Kuantan and Kuala Terengganu. Under the agreement, Emirates’ flight number will be placed on Malaysia Airlines’ services on those destinations.
The codeshare which began with the Kuala Lumpur – Dubai route on 15th February, saw Malaysia Airlines placing its code and flight number on Emirates’ service, which is represented by three daily flights on Boeing 777 aircraft and daily flights on the Airbus A380 between the two cities.
Apart from enjoying the convenience of a single combined ticket for Emirates and Malaysia Airlines-operated flights, passengers will also enjoy seamless travel options, and will be able to receive their tickets – as well as check in their baggage – at point of origin, to their final destination.
Emirates Skywards members and Malaysia Airline’s Enrich members, the airlines’ frequent flyer programmes, will be able to accrue and redeem miles on all international and domestic flights operated by both airlines.
On all routes covered in the codeshare, passengers will also enjoy generous baggage allowance in all cabins – 30kg for Economy Class, 40kg for Business Class and 50kg for First Class.
