Staff of Malaysia Airlines equipped with i-Pads will be constantly on their walks within a 5 meter radius of the Malaysia Airlines booth in the event venue to demonstrate to visitors the quick, smooth and hassle-free option for booking, paying and receiving their electronic air tickets as well as check-in. These records created will allow customers to immediately receive booking details in their hand phones.
