Malaysia Airlines: “Traditionally the second half of the year is better compared to the first half. We believe the rest of 2013 will be encouraging. We are working hard to sustain the strong growth in passenger traffic, capacity and seat loads in response to market demand. The arrival of more new aircraft until the end of 2013 will further improve our average fleet age and product offering,” Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, CEO. Source: Company statement, 20-Aug-2013.
