MAS to offer greater value for Brunei-Kuala Lumpur flights

By Sonia K

Starting today, Malaysia Airlines' (MAS) operated flights on the Brunei-Kuala Lumpur and Brunei-Kota Kinabalu routes will be offering greater value and choices on travels at lower prices.

According to MAS' press release, it will be rolling out its MH Value Fares offering passengers up to 70 per cent ticket discount - with fare options - MHlow, MHbasic, MHsmart and MHflex - for economy class travel.

At the same time, the airline is also set to remove fuel surcharge on its Brunei flights.

According to MAS Senior General Manager of Network Revenue Management, Dr Amin Khan, the decision to remove fuel surcharge was made after taking into account the decline in fuel prices, competitive pressures and the need to boost air travel during this period of economic slowdown.

The four fare choices differ in ticket discounts, purchase requirements and benefits with MHlow fares offering up to 70 per cent ticket discount with at least 21 days advance purchase. In the website, the MHlow fares will be indicated in red.

MHbasic offers up to 50 per cent ticket discount and requires 14 days advance purchase.

For those who require more flexibility and added conveniences, MHsmart offers 75 per cent Enrich Miles and baggage allowance up to 25 kg, the press release stated. Tickets can be bought four days before departure.

Mhflex, on the converse, offers the most benefits and flexibility as the tickets can be purchased anytime, bookings can be changed at no extra cost and customers enjoy 125 per cent Enrich miles accrual.

MH Value Fares is one of the many initiatives MAS has launched this year, which demonstrates the national carrier's commitment to provide customers with value and choices.

The release said customers will also continue to enjoy all the five-star services that MAS has always offered as an award-winning airline, including refreshments on board, convenient schedules, on time departures, minimum 20kg baggage allowance and many other benefits.
