SEPANG: Malaysia Airlines launched its new A330-300 aircraft amidst a ceremonial event at Kuala Lumpur International Airport this morning.
Malaysia Airlines managing director and chief executive officer Tengku Datuk Seri Azmil Zahruddin said the latest fleet was aimed at creating a strong and sustained platform to serve the airline’s discerning customers and for Malaysia Airlines to remain profitable.

“These aircrafts will serve the growing markets of South Asia, China, North Asia and Australia.”

The new Airbus A330-300 is the first of 15 aircrafts to be delivered to Malaysia Airlines over the next four years, as part of the airline's fleet renewal programme. It is the second fleet after the B737-800 to sport the dynamic livery with red and blue lines representing the Malaysia Airlines’ corporate colours.

The enhanced A330-300 has a total capacity of 283 seats, 36 seats in Business class and 247 seats in Economy class. All seats are equipped with AC power supply and USB port for laptops and electronic equipment. The new interiors are installed with mood lighting in cabins and spacious overhead baggage compartments.

The first commercial flight on the new A330-300 will be from Kuala Lumpur to Brisbane departing Wednesday (April 20), followed by flights to Shanghai, Osaka, Beijing, Perth and Delhi on later dates.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha attended the event. Also present were Malaysia Airlines chairman Tan Sri Dr Munir Majid, as well as representatives from Airbus and diplomat of France, Spain, Great Britain and Germany.

good initiative by MH which is long due as the older A333/332 are wayyyy-behind competitors' offerings..

However, MH tagline of being Asia's no.1 airline, non-stop to the top dubbed at the A33E launch ceremony seems to be too ambitious with this kind of products as no innovations offered, but MH just playing safe and following the trend esp in J class..

in short, good improvement but still not good anough to be no.1 in Asia..
