Malaysia Airlines’ Director of Human Resources, Zahrah Zaid and Malaysia Airlines’ Head of Operations and Industrial Relations, Kamal Azran departed Kuala Lumpur on MH 114 recently to visit the airline’s local staff and its Ground Service Agents (GSA). Most of them had their homes ruined in the disaster.
All 22 staff was presented with financial aid and relief items to assist them while they brave through the after-math of the earthquake.
During her visit, Zahrah had unexpectedly experienced the second earthquake. She shares, “Malaysia Airlines sympathizes and feels the suffering of the people in Kathmandu. One can only imagine the hardship and difficulties that they have to endure with the aftermath of the earthquake. Not only one, but two series of earthquake that have hit Nepal.”
“On this trip, we too unexpectedly experienced the second earthquake and felt the tremors during our visit. It was really traumatizing. Even more so for the team who had to face two powerful earthquakes and worrying about their family members and friends whom they have lost and some injured while still delivering their duties with much dedication and commitment.
“We are inspired and proud of our staff who have beaten the odds in making sure that Malaysia Airlines’ operations here run smoothly, despite the chaos caused by retiming of flights and having to arrange accommodation for stranded passengers. Their remarkable actions have reflected the true spirit of our airline as the national carrier to continuously deliver to our customers,” she added.
The visit was cut short due to the second earthquake and both Zahrah and Kamal were flown out of Kathmandu the same night.
Since the earthquake that hit Kathmandu, Malaysia Airlines has received overwhelming requests from around the world to assist the people of Nepal.
It had accommodated numerous requests to aid victims in Nepal, and the airline had allowed cargo space of more than 2000kg in necessities from donors to aid victims of the earthquake.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people in Kathmandu as well as our staff and GSA partner.
