Malaysia Airlines is offering complimentary Hygiene Kits to all passengers

To ensure safety and to provide peace of mind to all air travellers in the new normal, Malaysia Airlines is distributing complimentary hygiene kits to all passengers on all flights starting today, the 13th of July 2020. According to the national flag carrier, the kits are the latest addition to its Fly Confidently series of health and safety measures to minimise the spread of COVID-19.

The free hygiene kits contain a face mask, a gel hand sanitiser and a hand sanitising wipe. The items are packed hygienically in a sealed zip-lock bag for convenience.

According to the airline, they recommend that you change your face mask every four hours and they advise all passengers to bring enough masks for the duration of the trip.

Domestic travel is currently permitted with strict SOP in place during the recovery movement control order. All passengers are required to bring and wear their own protective masks before boarding and throughout the duration of the flight while practising good hygiene measures. Although airlines are now permitted to operate at 100% capacity, passengers must continue to adhere to safe distancing measures while queuing at the airport.
