Malaysia Airlines adds Chengdu, Wuhan, Guilin, Nanning and Changsha to its routes

Update:14 Apr 2010
Malaysia Airlines (MAS) passengers can now fly to five more destinations in China besides the six already served by the airline.
MAS senior general manager (network & revenue management) Dr Amin Khan, in a statement on Sunday, named the new destinations as Chengdu, Wuhan, Guilin, Nanning and Changsha.
The six destinations already served are Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Kunming, Xiamen and Hong Kong.
He said the new destinations were added on through a code-share arrangement between MAS and China Southern Airlines, adding that passengers could fly into Ghangzhou and connect to the five new destinations.
"It's even easier now for our customers to travel to China. The expansion of our partnership with China Southern enables our customers to fly to 95 destinations from Guangzhou and 38 from Beijing.
"Customers will also enjoy seamless and hassle-free services as they will be able to connect directly to their final destination with the 'through check-in' services offered," he said.
Amin Khan said that with the economic recovery, more customers were flying to China whereby the load for the existing six destinations was in the region of 75 per cent.
He said customers could also enjoy the comfort of new planes when Malaysia Airlines starts deploying its new A330-300 aircraft for these routes early next year.
He said that from Kuala Lumpur, MAS flies seven times weekly to Guangzhou and Beijing, 14 times weekly to Shanghai and Hong Kong and three times weekly to Kunming and Xiamen.
China Southern Airlines, he said, offered flights 14 times weekly from Guangzhou to Chengdu and Wuhan and seven times weekly from Guangzhou to Guilin, Changsha and Nanning.
