MH17 Incident – Australia/New Zealand Media Statement

MEDIA RELEASE

MH17 Incident – Australia/New Zealand Media Statement Released 22 July 2014

Malaysia Airlines confirms it is operating all scheduled flights to and from Australia and New Zealand as normal and is grateful for the support of travel agents and passengers during this difficult time.

The company reiterates that the Malaysian Government, the majority shareholder in Malaysia Airlines, is committed to ensuring the airline’s long term future as its national carrier.

“We are determined to rebuild trust in Malaysia Airlines as one of the best full-service carriers in the world and we appreciate the support of travel agencies, passengers and our valued employees,” said Mr Lee Poh Kait, Regional Senior Vice President, Australia, New Zealand & South-west Pacific.

“The Australasian region is our main market outside of Malaysia. As a result of increased demand, we boosted capacity from Australia and New Zealand in February 2014 by a third, with a sleek new fleet of the latest A330 aircraft and an AUD$800 million investment in new aircraft time,” he added.

There are now 81 flights a week direct to Malaysia with Kuala Lumpur as the hub to more than 80 destinations worldwide. Malaysia Airlines operates the state of the art A380 on services to London and Paris.

Malaysia Airlines flights to and from Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Darwin and Auckland will operate as per normal schedule.

Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets the loss of MH17 and our prayers and thoughts are with the families and loved ones.
