Award-winning film star Michelle Yeoh was on hand to watch world-famous shoe designer Jimmy Choo fit a pair of dazzling crystal high heels on British model Georgia May Jagger to help kick off the celebrations in Kuala Lumpur to mark the start of British Airways’ newest long-haul route.
The first of the new direct daily flights arrived in Kuala Lumpur on May 28 to put one of Asia’s most dynamic cities firmly on the British Airways route map.
