According to a report on Routesonline, the Kuala Lumpur-based airline plans to resume/operate more international routes to destinations in Asia, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand. The airline plans to start a majority of route resumptions which have been suspended amid the COVID-19 pandemic during the first two weeks of July. For each route, the airline plans to operate varying flight frequencies from once-weekly to daily. 

For its services to the Philippines, Malaysia Airlines plans to resume flights to Manila on July 3 with thrice-weekly services using Boeing 737-800 aircraft (MH704/MH705). The airline will eventually increase the frequency to daily on August 28.

Other cities that will see the resumption of flights by Malaysia Airlines from Kuala Lumpur in July include Osaka-Kansai, Seoul-Incheon, Tokyo-Narita, Delhi, Mumbai, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

For its flights to Europe, the airline will operate twice-weekly flights from Kuala Lumpur to London-Heathrow effective July 4. It will be gradually increased to thrice-weekly on September 1, followed by four-times weekly on October 1.

During the last two months, Malaysia Airlines suspended a majority of flights due to air travel restrictions implemented by the Malaysian government towards the end of March amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The airline has continued to operate flights to select destinations such as London, Auckland, Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth for repatriation travel purposes in addition to limited domestic routes.
