KUALA LUMPUR, 8 August 2017 – August and September holds a special meaning in the hearts of Malaysians, as they unite to celebrate Malaysia’s 60th independence and founding of Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day.
In the spirit of the season, Traveloka, a leading online travel company in Southeast Asia, has teamed up with national carrier Malaysia Airlines, offering exclusive discounts of up to 30 percent for flights between ASEAN countries and Malaysia to inspire Malaysians to spread their wings and explore.
Throughout August, customers who book Malaysia Airlines flights via Traveloka will receive up to 15 percent off economy class seats and up to 30 percent off business class seats for flights across Southeast Asia.
With the promotion, a round-trip economy ticket to Bangkok or Ho Chi Minh City would go as low as RM410 and RM428 respectively, inclusive of check-in luggage allowance and meals.
Traveloka Country Manager for Malaysia and Singapore, Halif Hamzah, said Malaysians were already some of the most well-traveled within the region, and expected many to take advantage of the long weekend at the end of August for a well-deserved break.
“When choosing a travel destination, Malaysians will more often than not head to other Southeast Asian countries, as they’re close by and more affordable compared to destinations outside the region.”
“Besides destination such as Thailand, Singapore, and Indonesia, there’s been a rise in interest to visit countries like Vietnam, Cambodia, and the Philippines, as more Malaysians are becoming aware of these countries’ unique offerings,” he commented.
Halif added that with the promotion, travelers could rest assured that they would get more bang for their buck, as Malaysia Airlines offers world-class service and facilities, providing a pleasant travel experience.
