Malaysia Airlines is soaring to new heights this 2024 following the press release of the Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG), unveiling the acquisition of 12 new aircraft, of which four are new aircraft types and the other eight being additional Boeing 737-8 aircraft to support its services.

MAG is also set to welcome its first A33neo, which the airline acquired along with the other 20 A33neos set to be delivered until 2028 after signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Airbus, Rolls-Royce, and Avolon.

The latest aircraft boasts a 297-seater capacity, with 28 seats in Business Class and 269 seats in Economy Class. It will be decorated with Collins Aerospace Elevation Business Class seats, which is a first for the group, and with a signature songket motif with individual privacy doors to provide the utmost comfort for its passengers.

On top of these, the new addition is set to improve the airline’s operational efficiency as well as reduce fuel consumption and emissions by 25%.

Malaysia Airlines is set to become the world's leading flagship carrier to showcase Elevation seats on the A330 airframe.

MAG’s modernisation programme will continue to further strengthen its name and service in the aviation industry.
