Darwin International Airport produced this top-class cake to celebrate the launch of non-stop flights on 1 November to Kuala Lumpur. Darwin becomes the sixth Australian airport to be served non-stop by Malaysia Airlines from its KL hub.
- Malaysia Airlines has launched non-stop flights from Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Darwin (DRW) in Australia. This makes Darwin the airline’s sixth destination served non-stop from its home base after Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. The route was launched on 1 November, and unlike the airline’s other Australian destinations, which are all served with widebody aircraft, the 3,640-kilometre Darwin route is served four times weekly with a narrowbody 160-seat, two-class 737-800. There is no direct competition on the route. See how Darwin Airport’s FTWA offering compares against this week’s competition.
