MALAYSIA Airlines (MAS) has adopted a "five-star airline with LCC cost" approach in planning its 2007 northern winter international schedules, which start on October 28 and where the changes focus on South Asia and Australia.

Lahore will be added to the national carrier's international network effective January 7, 2008, and MAS will operate three weekly flights from Kuala Lumpur to Lahore using an Airbus 330-300 aircraft. The destination will be linked to the Kuala Lumpur-Karachi return route.

MAS will add a fourth weekly frequency every Thursday on the Kuala Lumpur-Maldives-Colombo-Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur-Bangalore routes using a 294-seater Airbus 330-300 aircraft.

MAS will also introduce Thursday and Sunday morning frequencies on the Kuala Lumpur-Chennai-Kuala Lumpur route where a 229-seater, A330-200 aircraft will be operated on Thursday, while a 294-seater, A330-300 aircraft will be used for the Sunday flight.

The Kuala Lumpur-Hyderabad return flight now operated on the 229-seater A330-200 will be upgraded to a 294-seater A330-300 flight effective October 28.

The twice weekly Kuala Lumpur-Istanbul direct return A330-200 service will be re-aligned to a twice weekly Kuala Lumpur-Dubai-Istanbul return service effective January 8, 2008.

For the Malaysia-Australia operations, a fifth weekly Boeing 777-200 frequency on Tuesday will be introduced on the Kuala Lumpur-Adelaide return route during the peak period between December 4 and February 6, 2008.

Likewise, a third weekly evening frequency will be mounted for the Kuala Lumpur-Perth return route every Wednesday using A330-200 aircraft during the peak period from December 5 until February 7, 2008. Together with the daily evening B777-200 frequency, MAS will offer a total of 10 weekly flights on this route during this period.

The four weekly Kuala Lumpur-Xiamen frequency will be reduced to thrice weekly from October 28, while the thrice-weekly Kuala Lumpur-Kunming frequency will be temporarily reduced to twice weekly from January 4 until February 29, 2008.

MAS will downsize its Kuala Lumpur-Surabaya flights from nine times weekly to daily from October 28. Effective the same day, the twice-weekly Kuala Lumpur-Cebu return flights will be withdrawn, but the twice weekly Kuala Lumpur-Kota Kinabalu-Cebu return flights remains.

MAS will suspend its four weekly Kuala Lumpur-Nagoya-Kuala Lumpur service and its thrice-weekly Kuala Lumpur-Zurich-Kuala Lumpur effective January 5 and January 24 respectively.
