KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 12 (NNN-BERNAMA) — Malaysia Airlines has formed a codeshare agreement with South America’s LATAM Airlines Group as a way of offering even more seamless connectivity options to its customers.
LATAM Airlines is a Chilean airline holding company incorporated under Chilean law and headquartered in Santiago, Chile and is a leading airline in Latin America.
Effective this month, Malaysia Airlines’ customers will be able to connect to Santiago, Chile via Auckland (New Zealand), Sydney (Australia) or Melbourne (Australia) on LATAM’s trans-Pacific services, which are now marketed with the Malaysia Airlines “MH” flight code.
Likewise, LATAM Airlines’ customers will be able to connect to Kuala Lumpur via the same cities in Oceania on Malaysia Airlines flights carrying LATAM’s “LA” code.
Malaysia Airlines group chief executive officer Captain Izham Ismail said: “This new codeshare agreement further reinforces our commitment to provide a greater choice in destination for our passengers, giving the widest possible range of options for their travels.
“With this, we will be able to build our footprint in South America, with Chile acting as a gateway for Malaysians to explore the region,” he said in a statement today.
“This codeshare creates yet another way for international travellers to Fly Malaysia and experience the amazing culture and abundant nature that Malaysia has to offer. We will ensure that their trip to Malaysia will be an amazing experience from the time they board our aircraft, with our signature Malaysian Hospitality,” he added.
