Malaysia Airlines brings back direct Brisbane-Kuala Lumpur flights

Posted: 9 January 2018 12:24 pm


A new opportunity to save time on your flights to Asia.

Malaysia Airlines is recommencing non-stop flights between Brisbane and Kuala Lumpur from 6 June 2018.

The airline had stopped direct flights between the two cities two years ago but the reintroduction is anticipated to save passengers at least an hour of airtime and a potentially lengthy stopover.

Before this, passengers needed to have at least one stopover, usually in Bali or Singapore. Or take a drive down the coast where AirAsia flies direct to Kuala Lumpur from the Gold Coast.

The service will be operated by the airline's Airbus A330-300 jets and will initially fly four times a week in each direction.

Flights will run on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. From Brisbane, MH134 departs at 11.20pm to reach Kuala Lumpur at 5.50 am the following day and on the return leg, MH135 takes to the skies at 9.50am to reach Brisbane at 7.55pm.

To celebrate, Malaysia Airlines is currently offering introductory fares along this route from $604 return.

This is cheaper than fares we’ve seen with the luxury carrier in the past but still a little pricier than its budget competitor AirAsia.

If it saves you a stopover and gives you the added experience of flying with a full-service airline then it could be worth the extra cost.
