British Airways launches Kuala Lumpur flights

Accra, June 4, GNA – British Airways has launched services to Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport with a Boeing 777-200ER, offering a choice of four class cabins.

The cabins include First and Club World business cabin featuring award-winning flat beds, World Traveller Plus premium economy and World Traveller economy cabin.

The launch was marked by a Cinderella-inspired photo-shoot in Kuala Lumpur by Hollywood actress Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh, world-renowned Malaysian fashion designer Datuk Jimmy Choo and British supermodel Georgia May Jagger.

A statement issued by British Airways and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Thursday, said the iconic Petronas Twin Towers served as a stunning back-drop as Tan Sri Yeoh and Jagger dazzled, while seated in British Airways’ Club World business cabin seats while Datuk Choo slipped on a glass shoe specially designed for the occasion.

Datuk Jimmy Choo said: ‘Being a proud Malaysian, it has been such a pleasure to support British Airways as they begin services to Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia has so much to offer those looking for new business and investment opportunities, or a memorable holiday destination for a few weeks.

Beyond the action and nightlife of Kuala Lumpur, my hometown of Georgetown in Penang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a marvellous place and one that I highly recommend that tourists visit.’

‘Malaysia is the place I call home so I think it’s tremendous British Airways have launched a new route linking London and Kuala Lumpur. There’s so much to see and do here, be it visiting the historic monuments dotted around the city, tasting the mouth-watering delicacies served at our famous street food markets or wandering one of the many art galleries. I was born to the north in the city of Ipoh and it’s just one of the many inspiring places visitors can explore within easy reach during their stay,’ stated Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh.

Georgia May Jagger said she had enjoyed her time in Malaysia, adding, ‘The people are so welcoming and the food is amazing. I’ve been trying the local speciality dishes. It has also been an incredible experience working with Datuk Jimmy Choo on this one-of-a-kind photoshoot for British Airways. Being made to feel like Cinderella was a truly magical moment – after all, British Airways knows how to treat its customers.’

To celebrate the inauguration, British Airways is offering special fares to London, the UK and Europe from Kuala Lumpur, starting from just RM3, 088 for travel between May 28 and November 30. The fares are valid for booking until 16 June.
