Malaysia Airlines eyes US$100m interlining passenger revenue
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is eyeing an additional US$100mil interlining passengers' revenue a year through the induction of the national carrier into the oneworld alliance early next year.
MAS senior vice-president (international affairs) Germal Singh Khera said the full-fledged premium carrier currently registers RM750mil annual interlining passenger revenue.
"We are foreseeing the additional revenue to roll-in as early as next year, with MAS completing all commercial agreements with all other members of the oneworld alliance.
"We are currently at the last lap of our project to synchronise our system to accommodate the oneworld alliance members to give our customers a better and holistic network coverage," he told a media briefing.
Germal said MAS expects to conclude all work and officially join the alliance in the first quarter of next year.
"By September, we'll be able to finalise the official date for the joining. September is our cut-out date," he added. - Bernama
