Much-awaited link: Malaysia Airlines is offering attractive promotional fares for passengers boarding from Muscat.

Muscat: Travellers from Oman flying to Malaysia are set to benefit with Malaysia Airlines restarting daily flights between Dubai and Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia Airlines has added Dubai back to its network with effect from August 5. The Dubai-Kuala Lumpur return service operates daily via MH163 and MH162 using the Boeing 777-200 aircraft that has a total capacity of 282 seats, equivalent to 3,948 seats weekly.

In conjunction with the re-introduction of service, Malaysia Airlines is offering super attractive promotional fares for passengers boarding from Muscat. Round trip economy class fares start at only OMR250, all-inclusive. Round trip business class fares start from as low as OMR974, all inclusive. Muscat, Dubai and vice-versa are conveniently connected with Oman Air services.

MH163 departs Dubai daily at 4.10am to arrive at Kuala Lumpur at 3.25pm. The return flight MH162 departs Kuala Lumpur daily at 11.30pm to arrive at Dubai at 2.20am the
next day.

Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Executive Officer, said, "Dubai was one of the routes suspended as part of our route rationalisation exercise in January 2012.

We continuously monitor the market demand, and are happy to be able to add back Dubai into Malaysia Airlines' network to extend our reach and strengthen our offering to the customers."

Malaysia Airlines offers direct non-stop service to Kuala Lumpur with onward connections to destinations in Philippines, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, among others, from Dubai. Malaysia Airlines received its five-star Airline Certification at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2013, joining an elite group of airlines for its truly consistent and high quality of product and service. These are some of the reasons why customers experience a level of service like no other when travelling with Malaysia Airlines.

Malaysia Airlines has been steadily growing its reach and capacity this past year. The introduction of the A380 fleet in July 2012 now sees the new aircraft put on busier routes to London, Paris and Hong Kong.
