KUALA LUMPUR: Travel bugs who are fans of local songbird Yuna – here’s your chance to get the best travel deals and also meet the performer at the same time.
The singer-songwriter is set to have a meet-and-greet session at the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) pavilion at the WITM–MATTA Fair 2013 at PWTC today.
MAS regional senior vice-president for Malaysia Muzammil Mohamad said Yuna would be at their pavilion on the mezzanine floor of Hall 1 at 2pm.
“Besides Yuna’s performance, we will also have our special discounted rates and packages, not just for MAS but for all our subsidiaries too,” he told a press conference here yesterday.
Since the fair started on Friday, the MAS booth has been the centre of attraction with visitors waiting to snap up the over one million seats on offer by the airline.
The national carrier’s subsidiary Firefly is also offering 500,000 seats with fares from RM49 under its current Everyday Low Fares.
On ticket sales, Muzammil said that over 100,000 segments were sold on the first day with 80% of the purchasers opting to travel this year.
