KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 10): Malaysia Airlines’ tour operating arm ‘MHholidays’ has kicked off its ‘Kids Fly + Stay Free’ campaign — the first promotional campaign of its kind for the year — where customers can now enjoy up to 60% off holiday packages which are all-inclusive of return flights, baggage, in-flight meals and hotel stay.

In a statement today, the group said every booking under 'MHholidays’ will be entitled to a complimentary package of flight and accommodation for a maximum of one child aged between three and 11, and an infant aged two and below, starting from now until Sept 2, 2020, thus offering customers extra savings and benefits for the entire family.

Moreover, the package price for flight plus a three-day two-night hotel stay ranges from RM389 to Kota Kinabalu, RM189 to Johor Bahru, RM239 (Kuantan), RM249 (Langkawi), RM239 (Penang) and RM189 (Kuala Lumpur) from other destinations within Malaysia, while these packages are valid for immediate travel until Jan 31, 2021.

Malaysia Airlines’ group chief marketing and customer experience officer Lau Yin May said ‘MHholidays’ offer great value-for-money deals that cater not only for solo travellers indulging their wanderlust, but also for families who want to enjoy a hassle-free holiday.

“We are also delighted to have a myriad of four- to five-star hotel partners across Malaysia who are willing to collaborate with MHholidays to offer great deals for this campaign, making this the ideal time for customers to plan their travels right up until next year.

“With Malaysia Airlines’ enhanced health and safety measures implemented across all customer touchpoints, our passengers can fly confidently to their dream destinations,” added Lau.

As part of this campaign, Malaysia Airlines said customers who book their trip with 'MHholidays' will also be entitled to the ‘MHholidays & Suria Sabah Shopping Mall Privilege Booklet’, which offers additional perks such as 20% discount at Big Apple Donuts & Coffee, as well as lifestyle brands such as Birkenstock, Purest Borneo and Under Armour on top of what Sabah already has to offer.

It said this promotion is limited to a first come, first serve basis and is redeemable within 10 days upon arrival at Kota Kinabalu.

Besides, the group is also collaborating with Sabah Tourism to offer a special promotion in support of the #BahMarilah campaign to promote tourism into Sabah by offering promotion of up to 50% off on holiday packages and is available from today until Aug 24, 2020.

“Selected participating hotels in Sabah are also offering ultimate flexibility that enables passengers to make unlimited room booking changes without any additional charges imposed, complimentary room upgrade, late check-out and one-way hotel-to-airport transfer, all subject to availability. Packages are valid for immediate travel until Dec 31, 2020,” said the group.
