Malaysia Airlines is the flag carrier airline of Malaysia, headquartered in Kuala Lumpur. The airline operates flights to destinations in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East. Malaysia Airlines was founded in 1947, and it has since become one of the largest airlines in Southeast Asia.
The airline operates a fleet of both narrow-body and wide-body aircraft, including the Airbus A320, A330, A350, and A380, as well as the Boeing 737, 747, and 777. Malaysia Airlines also has a subsidiary airline, Firefly, which operates flights within Malaysia and to nearby countries.
Malaysia Airlines has faced several challenges and tragedies in recent years, including the disappearance of Flight MH370 and the shooting down of Flight MH17. These incidents have had a significant impact on the airline's reputation and financial performance, and the company has undergone significant restructuring and cost-cutting measures in response. Despite these challenges, Malaysia Airlines remains an important player in the Southeast Asian aviation industry.
