Malaysia Airlines’ flagship Platinum Lounge at Kuala Lumpur International Airport is once again open for all top-tier Oneworld frequent flyers to enjoy, with the airline promising a renewed “focus on premium service offerings.”
Located next door to Malaysia Airlines’ Golden Lounge in KLIA’s Satellite Terminal, the Platinum Lounge serves as a de facto first class lounge, given that Malaysia Airlines no longer offers ‘first class’ on its Airbus A350 flights to London.
Most guests at the Platinum Lounge are therefore drawn from the ranks of Malaysia Airlines’ won Enrich Platinum frequent flyers and their Oneworld Emerald equivalents (including Qantas and Qatar Airways Platinums), along with holders of CIMB Enrich World Elite Mastercard and of course first class passengers on any Oneworld airline.
Those visitors can look forward to an a la carte experience at the Platinum Lounge’s dedicated dining room, and retiring to a quiet corner of the lounge after their three-course meal – ranging from local Malaysian ox tail soup and of course Nasi Lemak to international classics – to enjoy some freshly-pulled teh tarik and a view over the tarmac.
There are also well-appointed shower suites and a nap room to take the edge off a long layover.
“We are thrilled to reopen our Platinum Lounge, especially as we continue to ramp up our international frequency and network to meet the growing demands for travel,” says Lau Yin May, Malaysia Airlines’ Group Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer.
“We hope guests, far and wide, will continue to enjoy the Malaysian Hospitality service that comes with flying with Malaysia Airlines; from the moment they seamlessly book their flights with us, upon their arrival at the airport, impeccable experiences at our lounges, and a comfortable journey on board.”
