Asia first for Malaysia

Carrier starts inflight mobile phone service

Malaysia Airlines has become the first carrier in Asia to offer inflight mobile phone services to its passengers after teaming up with prvider Areomobile.

The system has been installed on a Boeing 777-200 and will serve passengers on Malaysia's European, North American and Asian routes.

"This is one of the inflight service comforts that we are introducing on a trial basis for our customers as a Five Star Value Carrier. The trial will be conducted for a period of time and if the evaluation findings are positive, we aim to have this facility fully operational in the remaining wide body aircraft of our fleet by the end of next year.  With this facility , we definitely have a competitive edge and firmly believe that both our business and leisure passengers will very much welcome this new service," said Dato Idris Jala, managing director and CEO of Malaysia Airlines.
