Emirates Airline has joined hands with the Malaysian tourism department and has approved to increase its flights to Kuala Lumpur during Ramadan as Malaysia is expecting lot of Arab visitors during the Muslim fasting month.
Dr. Ng Yen Yen, Tourism minister of Malaysia , had previously had talks with Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief executive of Emirates Airline & Group , and had requested Emirates to add flights to Malaysia during Ramadan.
The minister said the unique atmosphere of Ramadan in Malaysia should be enjoyed by outsiders. “In Malaysia, the length of your fasting time is quite constant. The whole religious aspects are well-catered for in Malaysia. “You can have your breakfast and sahur (early morning meal) at the hotels which offer buffet spreads, and perform tarawih prayers at the mosque,” Dr. Ng Yen Yen added.
Emirates currently operate 21 weekly non-stop flights between its home base of Dubai and Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital.
