MAS Launches Twice Daily A380 Kuala Lumpur-London Flights

British travellers planning to travel between Kuala Lumpur and London have a reason to smile now as Malaysia Airlines has launched its double daily A380 flights between the destinations. 

The introductory daytime flight MH4 departed Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) for London Heathrow (LHR) at 10.45am on Nov 24, 2012. The airline was able to offer tickets for its twice daily flights only after it received its third and fourth A380 aircraft on November 19 and 23, 2012, respectively. 

With its new A380 services in place, MAS will now stop offering tickets aboard its 359-seater B747-400 flight connecting Kuala Lumpur and London.

The new daytime flight MH4 will depart KLIA at 10.45 am and will arrive at LHR the same day at 4.15 pm. The return flight MH1 will depart LHR at 10.00 pm and arrive at KLIA the next day at 6.20 pm. 

The airline will also offer tickets on its daily night flights to London. MH 2 will depart Kuala Lumpur at 11.40 pm and will arrive in LHR at 5.50 am the following day. The return flight MH3 will depart LHR at 12.00 noon and arrive at Kuala Lumpur at 7.25 am the next day. 

Malaysia Airlines is the only full service carrier that offers tickets on direct flights connecting Malaysia and the UK.

Malaysia Airlines’ move to add double daily A380 flights between London and Kuala Lumpur would mean higher availability of economy class tickets for those seeking cheap flights tickets connecting the two cities. Earlier, the airline was able to offer tickets for only 5,026 seats through the double daily B747-400 operations on the route.
