Kuwait Airways and Malaysia Airlines have announced a bilateral interline agreement that allows passengers to book flights through each airline with less hassle than booking separately. This agreement will allow each airline to expand its reach into different sectors of the world.
The interline agreement between the two airlines will bring expansion to both airlines' global presence. Malaysia Airlines will expand its network further and allow its passengers to fly into the Middle East much easier, specifically into Kuwait Airways' hub at Kuwait International Airport in Kuwait City. In addition to flying into Kuwait, passengers in the Asia-Pacific area can now fly to Saudia Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates through Kuwait City.
Kuwait Airways will expand its reach into the Asia-Pacific, Australia, and New Zealand. These countries hold frequent destinations for existing Malaysia Airlines flights, specifically to cities like Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Auckland, Tokyo, Seoul, and Singapore.
Along with the airline's expansion to the east, Kuwait Airways has continued its global reach. Earlier this year, the airline announced 20 new destinations located around the world. Some of these destinations include Budapest, Vienna, Athens, and Sheikh, among others.
The agreement was signed by the Chief Executive Officer of Kuwait Airways, Maen Razouqi, and the Chief Executive Officer of Malaysia Airlines, Izham Ismail. Razouqi spoke at the signing, saying,
"Kuwait Airways is pleased to sign the bilateral interline agreement with Malaysia Airlines. This agreement is the first partnership which will further facilitate a strategic cooperation with Malaysia Airlines, across multiple areas and in all fields of the aviation sector."
