PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airlines has begun flying to Yogyakarta, a sign of the continuing recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic for the airline industry.
In a statement issued today, the full service airline announced that the first flight of the new twice-weekly service between Kuala Lumpur and the Indonesian city took off yesterday.
This means that the airline now serves six cities in the archipelago, the others being Jakarta, Denpasar, Surabaya, Medan and Pekanbaru.
The two flights to Yogyakarta are on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Malaysia Airlines CEO Izham Ismail said the new service would cater to both leisure and business travellers.
He said the new service would also help the airline to achieve more than 82% of pre-pandemic capacity to Indonesia from 70% currently.
