Malaysia Airlines has no current plans to increase fares

15-Dec-2009 11:12 AM

Malaysia Airlines stated it has no plans at present to increase fares, as it is still cautious of an economic recovery (The Star, 14-Dec-2009).

Malaysia Airlines: “My sense is that you’ll never see airfares dropping to such low levels again. Airfares have to progressively go up as airlines cannot sustain these fares over a long time…We don’t have any plans to do so now as we remain cautious about the recovery. I expect we’ll see the real recovery only towards end-2010,” Dr Amin Khan, Network and Revenue Senior General Manager. Source: The Star, 14-Dec-2009.
