NATIONAL carrier, Malaysia Airlines (MAS), has signed a codeshare agreement with China Southern Airlines (CSA), providing passengers more choices and seamless travel to destinations served by the two airlines.
In a joint statement, they said both airlines would be able to tap feeder traffic from the domestic routes of the respective countries.
From today, passengers from both airlines will enjoy 35 weekly flights between Kuala Lumpur and Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing.
The partnership complements an earlier agreement allowing MAS passengers to travel on CSA flights to 90 destinations in China from Guangzhou and 38 from Beijing while CSA passengers flying into Kuala Lumpur can connect to all domestic points served by MAS and its subsidiary, MASWings, further strengthening Kuala Lumpur as the gateway for Chinese travellers into Malaysia.
MAS managing director/ CEO, Datuk Seri Idris Jala, said the company expected to see a seven per cent growth in passenger volume for the China-Malaysia bound flights.
