Malaysia flag-carrier cuts fares to draw travellers

Malaysia Airlines is promising attractive low fares and flexible travel dates between November 2009 and September 2010 as it kicks off "Everyday Low Fares" promotional campaign, national news agency Bernama reported.

The domestic and global promotion, beginning October 4, offers low fares to favourite Malaysian destinations and more, the airline said in a statement here yesterday.

"It will only cost 368 ringgit ($521) to Hong Kong, 400 ringgit to Taipei, 649 ringgit to Perth and 951 ringgit to Melbourne. For London and Europe, it's only 1,228 ringgit to Amsterdam, Paris, Rome and Frankfurt while London is a steal at 1,248 ringgit," the statement said.

MAS Senior General Manager, Network and Revenue Management, Dr Amin Khan, said more people are travelling with MAS as the airline's fares were very competitive and came with value-added services.

"Travel has picked up significantly to favourite Malaysian destinations such as Melbourne and London so much so that we are experiencing almost full flights," he said.

Despite the bleak global aviation outlook, MAS aims to return to operational profitability next year.

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2009, MAS posted an operating loss of 420 million ringgit due to lower operating revenue led by a decline in global travel and cargo movements. Pre-tax profit during the quarter amounted to 896.71 million ringgit while revenue stood at 2.56 billion ringgit.
