Malaysia Airlines has implemented numerous enhanced safety measures and protocols since the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Some of the measures include temperature checks, disinfection and sanitization of all properties, aircraft and facilities, social distancing enforcement, mandatory use of face masks, and the installation of screen barriers at check-in counters at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Additionally, all front line team members have been supplied with PPE kit and have their health screened daily. The carrier also sanitizes all guest luggage upon arrival as an additional health and safety measure. Malaysia Airlines will extend these precautionary measures to their ‘Malaysian Airlines Golden Lounges’ which are planned to reopen on July 1st, 2020.
