“Malaysia Airlines has no plans to withdraw its daily services to Perth or any other Australian cities (that it flies to),” the carrier said in a statement.
This was in response to Tourism and Culture Minister Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz’s statement that a number of Tourism Malaysia offices abroad would be closed following discontinuation of Malaysia Airlines’ flights to the cities involved.
It said the focus moving forward would be on expanding its network to China.
“China is an integral part of Malaysia Airlines’ future growth due to its geographical proximity and cultural ties,” it said.
The airline noted that it had ceased operations between Kuala Lumpur and Los Angeles, New York, Stockholm and Johannesburg from as early as 2009.
