Experience Darwin with Malaysia Airlines

by Terri McCollin on 24 October 2013, 09:10AM

Travellers looking for an authentic, off the beaten track experience Down Under would do well to explore Australia’s Top End. The eclectic cultural mix of Northern Territory’s capital city Darwin, lush monsoon forests, expansive national parks teeming with unique wildlife and abundance of Aboriginal art and ancient rock galleries make it a must for adventurous souls.

intro1

Until now, flight access to this tropical corner of the world has been limited but this is set to change on 1 November when Malaysia Airlines launches its new four times weekly Darwin route. Flying in style from London Heathrow via Kuala Lumpur on the latest Airbus A380, passengers will enjoy not only the largest aircraft in the skies but the most eco-efficient plane around too.

UK travellers will then make a quick transit in Kuala Lumpur onto the new and improved 737-800 aircraft to complete their journey to Darwin. The aircraft provides a premium travel experience with a configuration of 16 business and 144 economy seats, including an on-demand in-flight entertainment system for every seat.

Malaysia Airlines is one of the select few airlines to have received and retained a five-star rating from the prestigious SKYTRAX air travel ratings and reviews association. The airline launched their flagship Airbus A380 in July 2012 to offer passengers travelling from London Heathrow a premium double daily non-stop service to Kuala Lumpur. Over a year on, Malaysia Airlines now flies six A380 aircraft from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to London, Paris and Hong Kong.

The Malaysia Airlines A380 offers a number of other unique benefits including unparalleled levels of comfort and space with the widest first-class seats of any plane around at 40 inches and their innovative ‘Chef on Call’ service. This gourmet cuisine offering, available in both first and business class, enables passengers to order meals prior to departure, raising the bar for in-flight dining alongside the airline's renowned Satay dish (winner of the SKYTRAX Award for 'Best Signature Dish' in 2012 and 2013). The A380 has a capacity of 494 seats with 350 economy and 8 fully flat first class seats on the main deck. While the upper deck carries 66 fully flat business class and 70 economy seats.

intro3

Throughout the flight experience, passengers will benefit from spacious cabins, state-of-the-art on-demand entertainment and Malaysian Hospitality from the multi award-winning cabin crew. Malaysia Airlines’ generous baggage allowance means that preparing for a trip to the other side of the world needn’t be more expensive either. Passengers in economy class can carry up to 30kg; business class up to 40 kg and first class up to 50kg - all of which excludes hand luggage!

intro4

As a member of the world’s premier airline alliance oneworld, Malaysia Airlines passengers can earn and redeem frequent flyer points for future use with the airline or any other partner in the network. Malaysia Airlines manages 340 flights per day to more than 60 destinations, extending oneworld’s global reach to 842 destinations in 156 countries.

Darwin’s addition to Malaysia Airlines’ global network means that the carrier now serves a total of seven destinations across Australasia to offer some of the best connections across the region. Passengers departing from the UK can now travel in comfort to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane and Auckland via Kuala Lumpur and to many hotspots and capital cities across Southeast Asia.
