Malaysia Airlines Academy (MAA) was established in October 1994 to cater to the training needs of employees. The launch of the new MAB Academy (MABA) in 2017 as a distinct entity has been identified as a key enabler to transform, educate and develop aviation professionals of the future. The Academy is committed to bringing people together to offer world-class and highly relevant learning and development opportunities, covering all aspects of airline operations and management. This will be achieved by building and drawing upon internal existing capabilities, engaging external expertise and crafting strategic collaborative partnerships with industry leaders.
