TOUR company Apple Vacations & Conventions Sdn Bhd signed an agreement with Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAB) to operate chartered tours to Okinawa and Hokkaido, Japan, to cater to the growing demand of Malaysians travelling in November and December.
The agreement between Apple Vacations and MAB will see the former run its Inclusive Tour Charters (ITC) with the latter, providing six round-trip charter flights to the two destinations, utilising the airline’s A330-300 wide-body aircraft.
The agreement was inked at Wisma Apple in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur by Apple Vacations group executive chairman Datuk Lee Ee Hoe, group managing director Datuk Koh Yock Heng, MAB charter business head Proteek Sengupta and charter finance and administration assistant manager Hasnah Abdul Hamid.
Apple Vacations has been organising the ITC to Japan since 2010.
Apple Vacations has to-date mounted 57 charters with MAB to Japan, including the six flights for this year.
Charter flights from Kuala Lumpur to Okinawa and Hokkaido provide the convenience of a direct service to the destinations with no time wasted on layovers or change of plane en route.
Passengers will also be given better attention and service, both on the ground and on board the aircraft.
Apple Vacations’ 2018 ITC Program – in its ninth year of continuous charter operations – will offer one direct service to Okinawa in November and five direct services to Hokkaido in December.
There are a selection of Premium and Standard packages of 6D/4N and 7D/5N itineraries to both destinations.
