On Wednesday (July 10, 2024), Malaysia Airlines announced an expansion of their codeshare partnership with China Southern Airlines.  The expanded codeshare includes flights between Guangzhou (CAN) and Penang (PEN), Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and Beijing Daxing (PKX), and Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and Shanghai Pudong (PVG).  This follows the launch of the carriers’ codeshare flights on the Guangzhou-Kuala Lumpur route announced on July 6, 2024.

In Wednesday’s announcement, China Southern Airlines’ Deputy Director General of the Commercial Steering Committee and SVP – Marketing, Mr. Zhang Dongsheng, said,

“Under the framework of the "Belt and Road" initiative, China Southern Airlines will continue to leverage its network advantages to explore new opportunities with Malaysia Airlines, and deepen our cooperation in more fields, aiming to bring greater air travel experience for all passengers.”

Also commenting on the expanded codeshare partnership, Malaysia Airlines Group’s CEO, Mr. Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi, said,

“By expanding our codeshare agreement, travellers can now enjoy an enhanced travel experience, seamlessly connecting to more destinations with greater convenience and flexibility. As the gateway to Asia and beyond, Malaysia Airlines provides a world of exploration and adventure  for travellers on board Malaysian Hospitality.  This is especially beneficial with the current visa-free policy for Malaysian  & Chinese travellers to travel between the two countries, making it easier than ever to discover and appreciate the rich cultures and attractions they have to offer.”

China Southern Airlines plans on increasing capacity to Malaysia with 73 weekly flights.  Currently, Malaysia Airlines operates 54 weekly flights to China, including service to Guangzhou, Shanghai Pudong, Beijing Daxing, and Xiamen.
