KUALA LUMPUR: Tourism Malaysia and Malaysia Airlines are vigorously promoting Cuti-Cuti Malaysia packages to help boost domestic tourism revenue.

Tourism Malaysia director-general Datuk Musa Yusof hoped domestic tourism revenue would increase to RM76.9bil next year from this year's projected revenue of RM68.5bil.

He lauded Malaysia Airlines for offering discounts of up to 70% on selected hotels and flights for travel packages booked from December to the end of March 2020 through its travel marketplace MHholidays.

"MAS continues to show its commitment to promote Cuti-Cuti Malaysia packages that would further boost tourist arrivals," he said after opening the Cuti-Cuti Malaysia campaign at the Sunway Putra Mall here on Saturday (Nov 30).

Malaysia Airlines Group chief operations officer Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi said the travel packages offered include discounted flight fares and accommodation fees at more than 500 hotels.

"We have extended the offer until March 31 to include the Chinese New Year celebration and the March school break. To commemorate the launch, MHholidays will be offering discounts on hotel stays and flights, with an additional night’s stay free at selected hotels," he said.

Malaysia Airlines had also inked a Memorandum of Understanding with Tourism Malaysia earlier this year in support of VM2020 to help Malaysia achieve its target of attracting 30 million tourist arrivals.

"We are happy to extend this partnership today through our marketing collaboration with our latest product, Cuti-Cuti Malaysia packages with MHholidays to further promote domestic tourism.

"This collaboration further demonstrates our commitment to promote Malaysia as a preferred destination, and to promote Malaysia's unique destinations," he said.

Meanwhile, Musa said domestic tourism had always served as the backbone of the Malaysian tourism industry.

"I hope Malaysians will take advantage of these special offers to explore and experience the country's nature, arts and culture," said Musa.

Musa also lauded MAS for recently launching its "Fly Malaysia" campaign.

"I hope this campaign successfully promote Malaysia as a preferred destination," he said.
