Purchase one seat and receive a complimentary seat for your young flyer
Subang, 11 May 2013: Plan a trip with your whole family as Malaysia Airlines introduces the ‘Kids Fly For Free’ promotion. From now until 20 May 2013, customers will receive a complimentary seat for one child aged below 12 when purchasing a seat in Economy Class.
This promotion is valid for immediate travel until 31 May 2013 on all international and domestic sectors except Kuala Lumpur – Kathmandu, Kuala Lumpur – Mumbai, Kuala Lumpur – Chennai, Kuala Lumpur – Bangalore.
Malaysia Airlines Regional Senior Vice President, Malaysia & ASEAN, Muzammil Mohamad said, “This is our first time having a kids-fly-for-free promotion—we are really excited to tie in the campaign with the coming school holidays end of the month. We hope customers can take advantage of this campaign and start planning for a family vacation to our international destinations”.
“We also want families to have the best-time on-board. With our enhanced products and services, our customers and their children will get to enjoy these facilities while being served with unrivalled Malaysian Hospitality when they fly with Malaysia Airlines,” he added.
Customers can book their trip on the brand-new Airbus A380 to London, Paris or Hong Kong and experience the highest standards of comfort, luxury and amenities on these routes. The ‘Sky Squad Kids Tour’ (only available on London and Paris flights on the A380) leaves parents free to some in-flight entertainment on-board whilst children will be taken to a guided-tour on the superjumbo by the airlines’ award-winning cabin crew.
Young flyers will definitely work up an appetite during those long-haul flights. Parents can pre-order their children's meals at least 24 hours prior to their flight. The airlines' special Child's Meal is nutritionally designed for children aged two to five and the exact meal served depends on the flight sector. The array of delicious Child's Meal may include Omelette and Sausage, Breakfast Burger, Berry Hot Cakes, Spaghetti Meatballs, Chicken Lasagna and Pizza Duo.
Besides that, customers in Economy Class can now enjoy 30kg of baggage allowance. Parents and children can pack their favourite things and bring home travel souvenirs for more.
