Annual MAS travel fair given a new twist


KUALA LUMPUR: Travel buffs visiting the Malaysia Airlines Travel Fair will not have to worry about parking or getting caught in traffic this year. 

For the first time, the annual fair will not be held at one venue but will instead be held throughout the country at the offices of the airline’s appointed agents. 

The fair, themed “Great Deals, So Easy to Book”, will be from Feb 17 to 26. 

Executive director and chief financial officer Tengku Azmil Zahruddin Raja Abdul Aziz said tickets could be booked at MAS ticketing offices and the offices of participating travel agents in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. 

“Tickets can also be booked through the MAS website or our 24-hour call-centre. This will simplify booking procedures,” he told a press conference here yesterday. 

MAS senior general manager (network and revenue management) Bernard Francis said they were offering five million seats in this year’s travel fair. 

“The offer is valid for travel between March 1 and June 30 this year. 

“We will announce details of these attractive offers, including our attractive Golden Holiday packages from Malaysia, within the next two weeks,” he said. 

Francis also said that during the fair all MAS tickets would be on a promotional price of between 20% and 70% of the usual fare. 

He said one-way tickets were also available and that they were targeting RM150mil worth of sales.
