Malaysia Airlines practically cuts its offer in half in Paris

Removal of the A380 in Charles de Gaulle


Malaysia Airlines is going to replace its daily A380 to Paris by a Boeing 777. Meaning that its capacity is going to shrink by 42%. A decision that is on par with a more global context of rationalization of its network and reduction of costs for this company that is still going through many turmoils.

The Airbus A380 of Malaysia Airlines will no longer land in the Charles de Gaulle airport starting August 5th.

The company decided to operate its daily rotation between Paris and Kuala Lumpur with a Boing 777-200 of 282 seats, versus the 494 spots of the Airbus A380 that was put in place on March 2013.

The disappearance of the Super Jumbo (tested by TourMag.com in June 2014) will thus reduce the seat offer by 42% between the two cities.

This decision adds to Air France’s choice to no longer serve the Malaysian capital starting next October 25th.

Yet, the traffic between France and Malaysia was at a 4.9% growth in 2014, for 358,955 passengers according to DGAC figures.

A restructuring plan of 1.7 billion dollars

But the two companies struggled to maintain their prices in front of the Gulf companies who are always more commercially agressive.

Malaysia Airlines is currently going through a difficult restructuring period of which the cost is estimated at 1.7 billion dollars.

Christoph Müller, its new CEO, revealed last June the details of a large austerity cure.

He is even thinking about renting out the six Airbus A380 that Malaysia owns.

A necessary plan to straighten out a company whose reputation was destroyed by the disappearance of the flights MH370 and MH17, shot down above Ukraine.
