British Airways the Promising New Foreign Airline of the Year 2015 Malaysia

British Airways announced today that it has been named the Promising New Foreign Airline of the Year at the recently-concluded 2015 Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Awards 2015.  

The KLIA Awards is an annual event to acknowledge Malaysia Airports’ KLIA business partners that relentlessly push the boundaries of distinction in their fields.  Winners were chosen based on their 2015 achievement in sectors such as passenger movements, growth factor, sales performance, international recognition as well as their service excellence. Since its inception in 2006, it has evolved to be one of the most important events in Malaysia’s aviation industry.  

British Airways’ country manager for Malaysia, Vivian Tan-Loh: “We are very honoured and delighted to receive this award from Dato’ Seri Liow Tiong Lai, minister of transport Malaysia. British Airways celebrated the first anniversary of its return to Kuala Lumpur in May this year and remains committed to the market. We are constantly developing our products and services to offer more choices and options for Malaysian travellers.

Our commitment is underscored by the deployment of our latest and most technologically advanced aircraft Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on the London-Kuala Lumpur route. This newest aircraft is not only the most technologically advanced in the British Airways fleet, it also features the new First cabin that is made to impress. We also recently launched the On Business loyalty programme, enabling businesses, particularly SMEs, to maximise their travel budget.” 

British Airways is the only airline that operates direct flight to London from Kuala Lumpur using the newest and most technologically advanced Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. Customers from Malaysia can now enjoy a choice of four distinct cabins, namely the First, Club World business class, World Traveller Plus premium economy and World Traveller economy class. 

All flights from Kuala Lumpur land at British Airways’ home at London Heathrow Terminal 5. From there customers can enjoy stress-free onward connections to destinations in the UK, Europe and the US. Exclusive to customers of British Airways and Iberia Airlines, Terminal 5 was named by Skytrax in March 2016 as the Best Airport Terminal for the fifth year running; London Heathrow also won the Best Airport Shopping award.
