Malaysia Airlines has no current plans to increase fares

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.
