Malaysia Airlines Suspends Stockholm Route

Malaysia Airlines will suspend its thrice-weekly services from Kuala Lumpur to Stockholm and onwards to New York by October 2009.
The last flight from Kuala Lumpur to Stockholm will be on September 30 while the last flight departing Stockholm will be on October 2.
Malaysia Airlines commercial director Datuk Rashid Khan said the airlines has been serving Stockholm since 2004. Malaysia Airlines has decided to suspend the services as demand has dropped due to the global economic crisis.
“The suspension is part of our continuous review to ensure that we retain the correct balance in network and fleet utilisation given supply and demand.
“We are making arrangements to notify all who are affected. Customers holding tickets issued prior to today will be eligible for a refund, without any fees. We can also make arrangements for them to fly with our partner airlines should they wish to continue with their journey,” he said.
Malaysia Airlines will, however, maintain its office in Stockholm, and customers can continue to connect to Stockholm via Amsterdam with Malaysia Airlines’ code share partner, KLM.
