Lufthansa to introduce daily flights to Kuala Lumpur

As of March 30, 2015, Lufthansa increases the number of services from Frankfurt to Kuala Lumpur to seven weekly flights for the Summer schedule. In addition, the new Premium Economy Class will be introduced from June 3, 2015 onwards on this route.


In the new summer schedule, Lufthansa increases the capacity on the Frankfurt-Kuala Lumpur route from 5 weekly connections to a daily service. The two additional flights per week will also be connected to Jakarta. The route will continue to be operated with an Airbus 343.

“The decision to increase our capacity is a response to strong customer demand and a show of confidence in the Malaysian market. And with our new product, the Premium Economy Class, we hope to stimulate this demand even further. From June 3, 2015 onwards, the new product will be available on all our flights to Malaysia, which offers our customers the possibility to enjoy many additional benefits” says Paurus Nekoo, General Manager of Lufthansa Malaysia.

Premium Economy passengers get check-in allowance of two bags, each up to 23kg and have about 50% more space than Economy Class, thanks to a wider 23.5in seat, each with its own arm rest and a centre console between the seats. The back rest can also be reclined further and the seat pitch is a significantly more spacious 38 inches. For a fee of 25 euros, passengers with a Premium Economy ticket can access and relax in comfort in Lufthansa Business lounges prior to take-off. On board, each passenger in Premium Economy will be greeted with a welcome drink. At their seat in the cabin is an upmarket amenity kit, a water bottle and a power socket. Meals will be served on china tableware. Both Economy and Premium Economy Class passengers each have their own back-of-seat video on demand inflight entertainment systems. The TV screen in premium economy is 11-12in.
