These include the likes of airberlin, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Qantas and Royal Jordanian and some 25 affiliated operators. The privileges would include earning miles and redeeming them as well as earning tier status points when booking flights tickets with these carriers.
Malaysia Airlines will be expanding the alliance’s global network considerably, adding 14 new destinations and offering new routes to flights tickets seekers. Moreover, MAS will boost the group’s connectivity between several major cities in Asia and other parts of the globe.
