Celebrating Malaysia Airlines’ 40 Years with 40 Air Ticket Prizes

24 October 2012 : Malaysia Airlines will launch a series of campaigns in 2012/2013 to commemorate its 40th Anniversary of flying with the MH code, in appreciation of its customers for their support and commitment throughout the years. The national carrier will announce these initiatives progressively throughout the life of the program.

Malaysia Airlines, Commercial Director, Dr. Hugh Dunleavy said, “Turning 40 is an amazing milestone for us. Wonderful journeys are made by the people you travel with and we want to celebrate this special occasion with our staff and customers. We have planned year-round activities in various ways to reward and appreciate our customers and staff” he added.

One of the initiatives is a tie-up with a local radio channel, ‘hitz.fm’, for a contest titled ‘Take Someone Special, Somewhere Special’, where 40 pairs of economy class travel tickets to various Malaysia Airlines’ destinations are up for grabs over 40 days.

Listeners are asked to submit a slogan online stating, why they want to ‘take someone special, somewhere special’ at the 'hitz.fm' website (www.hitz.fm). Every single day, the best slogan will be rewarded with a pair of Malaysia Airlines air tickets to a Malaysia Airlines destination of the winner’s choice.

Participants are required to tune in to the ‘hitz.fm Top 40’ show hosted by Arnold and Natalie daily at 1pm to 4pm to find out who the lucky winners are, following which the announcers will call the winner of the day and ask them to share their slogan live on air!

The contest runs till 16 November 2012.

Those planning for a well deserving vacation should take advantage of this golden opportunity by participating in the radio and online competitions for a chance to fly across the world with their special one for FREE!
