KUALA LUMPUR: The chartering of Malaysia Airlines' aircraft by Manchester United and Real Madrid for their Asian tour is proof of its capabilities.
For the Manchester United Asian Tour 2005, the club appointed MAS as its official carrier.
From July 21 to 31, MAS will have flown the 80-member entourage from Manchester to Hong Kong, Beijing, Tokyo and back home.
This is the second time MAS has been involved in the Red Devils’ football circuit in Asia.
Meanwhile, top European football club Real Madrid returned to the Spanish capital city from Bangkok on a MAS B777-200 aircraft yesterday.
This is also the second time MAS was asked to fly Real Madrid to this part of the world.
