More A380s will be utilized to bring pilgrims on the annual Hajj to Mecca following a move by Malaysian Airlines to create a new carrier.


The KL airline had been trying to rightsize its fleet by selling six A380 Superjumbos but had been unsuccessful.
The airline said today that it would instead use the aircraft as the basis of a new carrier for the annual pilgrimage which is growing each year from Kuala Lumpar
