Press release from Malaysia Airlines has stated that MH74/75 returns to service - since the Gulf War and SARS epidemic scaled back its Hong Kong operations a while back.

The new flight will be operated by the A330-200 six times a week whilst the A330-300 will operate the remaining weekly service to make 7 extra flights between KL and HKG. Flights depart KUL in the evenings and overnight in HKG before flying back to KL the next morning.

MAS will also increase its Kota Kinabalu-Hong Kong service from 4 weekly 737s to 6 flights a week operating daily except Fridays. In addition, the flights will also continue on to Kuching.

A330-200s to Hong kong? Great news. Look forward to seeing the Malaysian Airbuses back here, since they've got a few new ones recently.

How many total flights per week will MAS have on KUL-HKG with these 7 new flights?

MAS will now go double daily to HKG with B 744s and the new daily's with A 332s/333s.

The A 332s I think are ex LX machines???

Anyways I think that its a v wise move on their part concerning increasing their HKG frequencies.

Great news, I need all the -200's and the -300 they have got back!!

I've also noted the KK flight goes fom MH060 to MH062. In the past this flight was a code share with KA, both airlines operating the route on different days. Will they now both operate the route on the same days or have KA stopped?

Thanks Behramjee and KEno!

Nice schedule. I assume they use the A330 from Kota Kinabalu?

By the way, what does your signature mean?

Regards

BA,
"Sentiasa Melepasi Jangkaan" means "Going Beyond Expectations", which is the new slogan for Malaysia Airlines. Actually you could hardly ever find the Malay version anywhere (I've only seen it once), even back home we stick to the English version most of the time.

FRom BKI the B734 is used.

A333 is used to HKG on Sundays. A332s on remaining days.

Currently we have 5 A332s. 3 are ex-SN/VG and 2 recently del. ones are ex-LX.

A 'new' A333 has been delivered ex-Skyservice C-FRAE now 9M-MKS. Another one is due very soon. So HKG spotters watch out for these new birds!  Big grin

2 'new' A333s are 9M-MKS and 9M-MKR.
5 A332s are 9M-MKV,W,X (ex-SN)
2 A332s are 9M-MKT,U (ex-LX)
