2024 looks to be the year for Malaysia Aviation Group, which owns Malaysia Airlines, Firefly, MASwings and MASkargo, as they lay out their plans for growth this year.

The airline seeks to look away from the woes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, with short-term successes encouraging further growth in the markets they serve.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Malaysia Aviation Group looks to take delivery of around 12 aircraft over the course of this year, which consists of the following:

  • Four Airbus A330-900neos – First delivery in Q324.
  • Eight Boeing 737 MAX 8s.

What is key to note is that the group has laid out the seating plans for the A330-900neos, which consist of 28 seats in Business & 297 in Economy.

Commenting on the growth plans was Datuk Captain Izham Ismail, Group Managing Director of Malaysia Aviation Group:

“We are excited to induct the first of 20 Airbus A330neo’s in Q3 of this year, which will gradually replace our A330ceo fleet and operate to our network across Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East.”

“This expansion is not just about increasing our inventory in numbers but also introducing the first-of-its-kind cabin class, new seats and experiences that prioritises customer safety, comfort and overall satisfaction.”

“We will continue to channel our investments into endeavours that strategically align with the key pillars driving our customer value proposition, namely cabin comfort, in-flight dining, and service delivery of our esteemed cabin crew.”

“We aspire to curate an overall passenger experience that not only meets premium standards but exceeds them, underpinned by our inimitable Malaysian Hospitality.”

Cabin retrofits of their six Airbus A350-900s are set to begin in 2026, highlighting that from all bases, Malaysia Aviation Group is beginning to think further into the long-term.
