Reopening of international flights in Malaysia
Coronavirus Travel Advisory:
KL : The Malaysian government allowed Malaysian Airlines (MAB) to resume some of their international flights starting next July. The reopening of international flights in Malaysia is possible because a number of countries have begun to open their respective borders.
International flight routes that will open in Malaysia in July include Bangladesh, Nepal, Britain, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, India, China, Singapore, and the Philippines.
Malaysia Airlines is scheduled to resume all international flight routes in October.
“The reopening of international flights by Malaysia Airlines allows the reunification of a number of families separated by the coronavirus pandemic (covid-19),” said MAB Chief Executive, Captain Izham Ismail.
Although some international flights will open in July, all passengers are asked to always obey the rules before traveling. Additional health protocols are certainly implemented, both in Malaysia and the destination country.
Since the beginning of June, Malaysia Airlines has increased the frequency of domestic flights amid easing a number of restrictions related to covid-19.
Last weekend, Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin announced plans to enter the co-19 recovery phase. He said the latest phase will continue until August 31.
The Movement Control Command (PKP), which was then followed by the Conditional Movement Control Command (PKPB), was first implemented in Malaysia on March 18. PKPB, which has been extended four times, is scheduled to end this Tuesday.
PM Muhyiddin said that the recovery phase was part of the PKPB “exit strategy”. The recovery phase can be applied because the downward trend in cases and deaths due to covid-19 in Malaysia continues.
