xMalaysia-Airlines-800x500_c.jpg.pagespeed.ic.U5S37zJADGAlbeit still in the single-digit percentage, Malaysia Airlines Bhd is keen to develop its chartered business segment. The airline wants to grow revenue contribution to the group by utilising its Airbus A380 aircraft.

 
“The great thing about using an A380 for chartered business is that our cost per seat is very effective as it provides 500 seats that will be fully taken up,” Chief Commercial Officer Paul Andrew Simmons told a press conference after signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Andalusia Travel & Tours Sdn Bhd and Rayhar Travels Sdn Bhd in Kuala Lumpur yesterday (June 2).

 
On the MoU yesterday he said the collaboration would present an opportunity for the airline to continue developing its chartered business for the religious market segment.
Simmons said there was stronger demand for chartered aircraft from the China-Malaysia route segment, primarily the China-Sabah route.

 
Meanwhile, Andalusia Managing Director Ibrahim Mat Sin said the chartering of the A380 aircraft was crucial considering the growing number of umrah pilgrims year-on-year
