Flight options from Adelaide to the Malaysian capital have just expanded with Malaysian Airlines confirming a 5th weekly service between Adelaide Airport and Kuala Lumpur.

From July 5 this year Malaysia Airlines will fly from Kuala Lumpur to Adelaide on Wednesdays, returning on Thursdays.

Currently fights from Adelaide to Kuala Lumpur are only available on Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.


The flights will be on board an Airbus A330 aircraft with fully-flat beds in business class.

Adelaide Airport Managing Director Mark Young said it was great to see Malaysia Airlines’ continued growth in the South Australian market.

“Malaysia Airlines was one of the very first international carriers to service Adelaide, and they’ve continued that support for almost three decades.”

Malaysia Airlines Regional Manager Australia & New Zealand, Gabrielle Vicari said the carrier was responding to increasing customer demand for services from the South Australian capital to Malaysia and beyond.


“We are excited to again be growing in South Australia, and hope in the future to return to daily year round services,” Vicari said said.

South Australia’s Tourism Minister Leon Bignell said he appreciated the loyalty Malaysian Airlines had shown the state, especially during the past few years.

“Visitors from South East Asia continue to grow as word spreads about South Australia’s amazing scenery, wildlife experiences and premium food,” he said.

“It’s fantastic to see Malaysia Airlines back in a growth phase, increasing the number of flights from Kuala Lumpur and upgrading their cabins to provide more space and premium economy class.
