Malaysia Airlines expands air and rail ticketing options

Malaysia Airlines is expanding its air and rail ticketing options through a new product called MHrail, which offers multi-modal travel in one booking.

The company is collaborating on this initiative with Canadian intermodal services specialist AccesRail, which will transport flights from London Heathrow Airport to UK rail services operated by London North Eastern Railway (LNER) and Avanti West Coast. It plans to offer train reservations.

Malaysia Airlines already sells air rail tickets in the UK through an existing partnership with Great Western Railway.

Outside the UK, the company also offers Korail KTX train tickets to and from Incheon International Airport in South Korea.

Dersenish Alesandiran, Airline Chief Commercial Officer of Malaysia Aviation Group, said:

“With the introduction of our new MHrail product, we now offer passengers a convenient way to purchase both air and rail tickets, allowing them to explore nearby cities and enjoy their subsequent layovers upon arrival in London or Seoul. It becomes easier to do so.”

Andrew Popescu, Vice President of Business Development at AccesRail, added: “We are excited about the deepening collaboration between Malaysia Airlines and AccesRail and look forward to continuing our collaboration on a global scale.”

“Through this enhanced AccesRail partnership, Malaysia Airlines will be able to offer more destinations and more possibilities to its customers in a more seamless manner, now and in the future.”
