MAS launches Jumbo A380 on KL London route
Also present were Transport Minister Kong Cho Ha and MAS group Chief Executive Officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahya.
Incidentally, it was exactly 38 years ago that MAS operated its flights to London when it began its service between the two cities on July 1, 1974.
MAS is now the eighth operator of the super jumbo and will be the second carrier to operate such an aircraft when it becomes a full member of the one world alliance by the end of the year.
The national carrier also notched several significant firsts with the A380 operations. Among others, it is the only airline to introduce its A380 in an exclusive new livery. It also has the widest first class seats among the operators of the aircraft.
Muhyiddin said the aircraft would contribute to the efforts of increasing the number of tourist arrivals.
Ahmad Jauhari said the introduction of the A380 would see a continuation of the company's refreshed brand campaign which started in March.
MAS, he said, would operate a daily flight between the two destinations by mid-August.
