Malaysia Airlines Continues Special Offers Till March 31

Malaysia Airlines (MAS) announced today that its promotional deals for domestic and international travel that were on offer from March 11, 2013 and coincided with the recent Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) fair from March 15-17, are still available until March 31, 2013.

Malaysia Airlines Regional Senior Vice President Malaysia and Asean region, Muzammil Muhammad, said compared with the previous MATTA Fair, MAS' take-up for this year had been very encouraging.

"The response exceeded our expectations and we are also delighted that our customers have taken the opportunity to purchase the oneworld special fares.

"These offers are still available till March 31, 2013, and we encourage consumers to take time during the forthcoming school holidays to plan with their children for their next vacations till Nov 30, 2013 using our irresistible offers," he said in a statement Saturday.

On the domestic front, MAS said the consumers continued to snap up offers in great numbers for travel from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu, Tawau and Sandakan, totalling to almost 36 per cent of those who had purchased the national carrier's special fares during the promotions.

It also reflected the consumers' confidence in the government's on-going 'Ops Daulat' to restore normalcy in the east Sabah region around Lahad Datu, it said.

The all-in economy class fares for these routes as well as for the routes between Kuala Lumpur and other destinations in Sabah and Sarawak, namely, Kuching, Miri, Sibu, Labuan and Bintulu are on offer at RM150 one-way and RM300 for return.

Similar fares are also available for travel from Sabah and Sarawak to Kuala Lumpur.

On its international network, MAS said the A380 routes are popular among travellers, with London continuing to be the most sought-after long haul destination with more than nine per cent of the purchasers, while regionally, Hong Kong is the favoured destination with more than 13 per cent of the customers.
