Malaysia Airlines

Malaysia Airlines has offered to waive fees for any passengers wanting to make changes to their flight itineraries with the carrier in the wake of the tragic MH17 disaster.

The airline said that passengers who wished to postpone or cancel their travel plans could have a refund, including for non-refundable tickets, but would have to do so by Thursday.

The concessions are restricted to travel up until December 31, 2014.

A spokesman said: ‘Our Enrich passengers will also receive fee waivers for any changes to their travel itinerary, as well as refunds of miles should they choose to cancel their redemption tickets.

‘These waivers are only applicable from July 18, 2014 until July 24, 2014, for travel between July 18, 2014 until Dec 31, 2014.”

Those who wish to change their travel plans are urged to contact their nearest Malaysia Airlines ticket office or call the global call centre on 1 300 88 3000.

The spokesman added: ‘Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets the loss of MH17, and is very much appreciative of the support from our passengers.’

Experts from the UK are to join those from the US and other nations in the Ukraine on Saturday to assist a Ukrainian-led investigation into how the flight was brought down.

Downing Street said six investigators from the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch would join the growing international probe into exactly how the plane came to crash, killing 298 people, including 10 Britons, nearly 200 Dutch passengers and 80 children.

The Foreign Office has also sent extra consular staff to Ukraine and the Metropolitan Police is liaising with international partners to send specialist officers to the country to assist with the recovery, identification and repatriation of those killed.
