British Airways has launched a new codeshare partnership with its Oneworld alliance partner Malaysia Airlines.
Currently, BA flies from London Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur daily with a Boeing 787-9 aircraft and Malaysia Airlines flies from Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur twice daily with Airbus A350-900 aircraft.
BA will now place its code on Malaysia Airlines flights from Kuala Lumpur to the following destinations in the Asia-Pacific region, which are not served by direct BA flights:
Malaysia: Alor Setar, Kota Kinabalu, Johor Bahru, Kuching, Kuantan, Labuan, Langkawi, Miri, Penang, Sibu, Kuala Terengganu, Sandakan, Kota Bharu, Bintulu
Australia: Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth
Cambodia: Phnom Penh
Indonesia: Denpasar-Bali, Jakarta, Surabaya
New Zealand: Auckland
Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City
Note that these can only be booked when connecting to/from a BA operated flight between London Heathrow and Kuala Lumpur. The two airlines will not codeshare on London Heathrow – Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysia Airlines will also place its code on BA flights from London Heathrow to Aberdeen, Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and Newcastle.
Subject to regulatory approval, Malaysia Airlines will also place its code on BA flights from London Heathrow to Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Geneva, Hamburg, Lyon, Paris, Toulouse, Vienna, and Zurich. Again, these can only be booked through Malaysia Airlines when connecting to/from a Malaysia Airlines flight between London Heathrow and Kuala Lumpur.
Codeshare flights should be available shortly on ba.com for travel from Wednesday 9 October 2019.
