MAS appoints Expedia to offer online fares
Published: 2012/09/20
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has appointed Expedia, Inc. group, the world’s largest online travel company, to offer travellers in Malaysia affordable airfares all year round and at any time of the day, effective today.

The partnership provides Malaysian consumers with a simple and easy to use online travel booking channel for them to view, select, transact and finalise their air travel needs from the comfort of their homes and work places.

The arrangement appoints Expedia as one of MAS’ official online ticketing agents.

It makes the airlines’ full schedule of domestic and international routes and fares, including that of its wholly owned subsidiary MASwings, available to consumers booking flights on Expedia’s newly-launched Malaysia website, www.expedia.com.my.

Commenting on the partnership, MAS Head of Sales and Distribution Duncan Bureau said : "As the hospitality industry firmly leverages on the online options for purchase of related products and services, we at MAS are continuously taking advantage of this development, to expand our online distribution channels for customers to enjoy best prices throughout the year."

Bureau said MAS was already working with Expedia in other markets where the airline operates.

"This is an extension of that partnership for the benefit of our customers in Malaysia," he added.

Meanwhile, Expedia's Senior Vice President of Global Tour and Transport, Greg Schulze said : "We are very pleased to build upon Expedia’s relationship with MAS, one of the country’s leading travel brands, and to provide consumers with an extensive selection of MAS’ content on the country’s only full-service travel site, Expedia.com.my.

"It is an exciting opportunity and one that will improve the entire travel booking experience for consumers throughout Malaysia." -- BERNAMA

MASwings’ safety system is world standard — COO
by Peter Sibon, reporters@theborneopost.com. Posted on September 22, 2012, Saturday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/09...-standard-coo/



EXCELLENT SAFETY POLICY: Nasip (seated right) speaks to the media at

KUCHING: MASwings’ safety system meets world’s standard and its procedures to face emergency situations, including the unlikely event of a crash, are in place.

MASwings chief operating officer Nasip Roslan added that all its planes are checked every six months to ensure their airworthiness.

“Yes, definitely. Our system and emergency procedures are of world class standard and approved by our regulatory body under the DCA, which follows world class standard,” Nasip told the media at MASwings’ emergency simulation exercise held its office at the Kuching International Airport here yesterday.

Currently, MASwings, which has some 1,400 staff, is servicing both the Sarawak and Sabah sectors with ten ATR 72 500 aircrafts and four Twin Otter-300 planes.

For safety purposes, each ATR is fitted with very high frequency radio system to track it while the Twin Otter plane is fitted with a GPS.

“The way the system is designed in all our planes is that when an unlikely event of certain emergency, such as when a plane is subject to a certain force or it crashes, it will emit an emergency frequency that will indicate its exact location,” Nasip pointed out.

He added that when such a scenario occurs, the signal will be transmitted to the Air Traffic Control (ATC) which would then alert the entire response teams.

“When such an unlikely event happens, the response would be almost immediate,” he said.

Nasip, who has been in the industry for over 30 years, pointed out that their rescue procedure policy is also one of the best in the aviation industry.

However, he admitted that MASwings, like other aviation organisations, do experience a staff shortage and delays in its response.

“That’s why we will continue to improve ourselves on how best we respond to any situation,” he stressed.

On another safety issue, Nasip assured its customers that should anything happen to any of its pilots while flying, the co-pilot could easily take over to ensure the safe landing of the aircraft and passengers’ safety.

On a related issue, Nasip said MASwings is using much smaller planes to service the people in Sarawak and Sabah, as it does not warrant the company to use much bigger jet planes.

“We are operating on passenger-demand and it’s much cheaper to operate these smaller aircrafts compared to the bigger jet planes,” said Nasip, adding that he could not comment whether or not his company is considering getting any jet plane in the near future.

On the Twin Otter planes, Nasip said they are used to service smaller towns and isolated destinations such as Ba Kelalan, Lawas, Bario and Mukah and Tanjong Manis.

Meanwhile, Nasip said MASwings is ever ready to charter its aircrafts to the Election Commission (EC) in the upcoming general election.

it's a recurring pattern with the officials... they seem to give little credit to the intelligence of the people... as if the people just came out of the jungle or kampung (if you are a little better off) and treat the public as schmucks!

had so much fun flying into rural areas in Sarawak and Sabah then (even though route in Sabah were only from BKI to Kudat then onwards to Sandakan). In certain airfield in Sarawak frequency used is HF (which is normally used outside positive radal control). It was really good experience until Tony Fernandes came into the picture.

As long as it being maintained per schedule, it's safe. Different aircraft, different characteristics. Every plan can glide and land, but for high wing plane like DHC6 it can glide over longer distance, which can make difference. Approach speed can be like 55 knots, very slow but give you short landing distance. That's why it can land in unpaved and short strip in Borneo interiors. The tradeoff is slow cruising speed. Twin otter is unpressurised too. Meaning it cant go beyond 10,000 feet.

The aircraft is rugged and tough. No wonder it's still flying today.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines System Bhd’s unit MASKargo has recently taken deliver of its fourth and final Airbus A330-200F airplane to complement the two Boeing 747-400F in its existing fleet, MASKargo said in a press release.

“While we expect the competition here to be stiff, we are confident that through collaborative efforts we will be able to tap into an economic growth that requires the fast and efficient movement of goods and services, particularly for the oil and gas supply chain,” said MASkargo’s senior vice-president business development & freighter services Jamaludin Ismail in the statement.

MASKargo added that new resource discoveries projected a promising outlook for the oil and gas sector, which would enable the company to grow with its business partners in Labuan.

Andrew Muirhead's leather chosen for Malaysia Airlines' A380

Glasgow, Scotland 25 September 2012 – Andrew Muirhead and Son Limited, part of the Scottish Leather Group, has been selected to supply the leather for a new and updated fleet of Malaysia Airlines aircraft, including the pioneering new A380 Airbus widebody double-deck – the largest commercial aircraft in the sky.

The company’s renowned high performance low carbon leather is used in all cabins of the new A380, the B737-800 and for all headrests in the A330-300 aircraft on the Malaysian national carrier’s updated fleet. Malaysia Airlines’ new flagship aircraft, the A380 joined the fleet in July this year, on the daily London to Kuala Lumpur route, which now has two A380s in service. The third, Scottish leather adorned Malaysia Airlines A380, will commence operations on the airline’s international network by November this year.

I think all new A380s came with this leather seat. It's just they made the announcement. The contract commenced long time ago.

If they can travel without check in luggage, i think it's pretty hard even to reach 700 passengers. We have to see the routes too, for record breaking purpose, i think it's doable. But from economic point of view, i doubt it's sustainable.

B744F can take up to 105 tonnes of payload. If we crammed an adult weighing 100 kg each, we can have more than 1000 people on board including 2 pilots.

Then we can put it in Malaysia book of records and paint the livery 1Malaysia cargo flight.

from the wiki, a380 can fly up to 853 people. i guess it's possible to do 1000 but i think they make more money per flight in 3-class configuration when you can sell the business/first class at 200-300% profit margin.

I wouldn't want to take the 1Malaysia flight for fear of safety and lack of maintenance.
