Malaysia Airlines receives FULL Marks for its Covid-19 safety protocol

 

London, 18 January 2021: Malaysia Airlines has received seven stars - full marks - from Airline Ratings in an independent review of its COVID-19 health and safety measures.

The rating is based on seven criteria: COVID-19 guidance on the airline’s website, social distancing during boarding, flight attendants’ Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the compulsory wearing of face masks onboard, modifications to the meal service, passenger hygiene kits, and the deep cleaning of the aircraft. Malaysia Airlines was deemed to have excelled in all categories, resulting in it being awarded all seven stars.

Airline Ratings is a worldwide airline safety and product rating review website. Its rating system ranges from one to seven stars, taking into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies, lead associations, and the airline’s own safety data.  

Group Chief Executive Officer of Malaysia Airlines, Izham Ismail said, “COVID-19 has presented a challenge unlike any the aviation industry has faced previously, and Malaysia Airlines has needed to adapt our services and protocols quickly to ensure that our passengers and staff are kept safe and comfortable. In July 2020 we introduced the “Fly Confidently” campaign, to educate passengers on the enhanced measures implemented across touchpoints at airports as well as on board.  

We are very proud that the range of measures we have put in place from check-in through to arrivals have been recognised by Airline Ratings and hope that this seven-star rating provides further reassurance to our customers that every flight with Malaysia Airlines will be safe and enjoyable for all onboard.”

To take advantage of the airline’s great prices and outstanding COVID-19 safety record, guests can book their tickets at Malaysia Airlines’ participating travel agents or visit Malaysia Airlines’ website at www.malaysiaairlines.com.
