Malaysia Airlines plans to pull its flights to Johannesburg and Cape Town early next year.
Malaysia’s The Star Online has just reported that the airline is planning to axe various unprofitable routes in a bid to reduce costs. These include flights to South Africa and Buenos Aires in South America as early as February. The airline will also pull out of Dubai but this will be done gradually with a reduction of frequencies.
Meanwhile, Malaysia Airlines Country Manager for South and Central Africa, Yusno Said, said the airline would soon notify the South African market of any official developments.
