Malaysia Airlines gradually resumes Asian flights

KUALA LUMPUR, 10 August 2020: Malaysia Airlines is filing changes to its  International schedule for the northern winter 2020/21 season, that begins 25 October reflecting deep cuts to flights when compared with schedules that were operational before Covid-19.

More changes are due to the Asian timetable first filed 7 August. They are subject to change depending on travel bans and restrictions. In particular, the Bangkok flights are tentative, and due to the ban on commercial international flights, it is highly unlikely that services could resume in earnest by October or even by the end of the year.

  1. I think all these flights are tentative, certainly not only Bangkok. I think you’re only singling out Bangkok due to this being a Thai based media organization. In reality though, all countries are likely equally or almost equally affected. Whenever one Asean country opens, the others will quickly follow suit.
