Malaysia Aviation Group’s Airlines to Provide More than 18,000 Additional Seats for Hari Raya Travels


KLIA, 6 April 2023Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG)’s airlines, comprising Malaysia Airlines, Firefly, and MASwings will be allocating over 18,000 additional seats during the upcoming Hari Raya peak travel period to accommodate the expected domestic travel surge beginning 18 April to 1 May 2023 and ensure customers are reunited with their loved ones. This is on top of the additional 20,000 seats launched on 29 March 2023 which are currently almost fully sold out.

For seamless travel during the peak travel period, Malaysia Airlines will be upgrading its services using the Airbus A330 to Kota Kinabalu on 20 and 30 April, as well as 1 May; and adding another 54 extra flights to Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, Tawau, Sandakan, Kota Bahru, Alor Setar, Terengganu, Kuantan, Labuan, Bintulu, Sibu and Miri to ensure convenience for passengers. With the additional seats, the fares will be dynamically adjusted downwards, making it affordable for passengers to travel back to their hometown for the Hari Raya celebrations.

Malaysia Airlines’ sister airline, Firefly has also increased its flight frequency to Kota Bharu and Kota Kinabalu to support the travel demand.

Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi, Chief Executive Officer of Airlines from Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG), said, "We are currently seeing positive demands during this period and encourage passengers to plan their travels ahead of time to enjoy the best deals on airfares. As of February 2023, our capacity reached 85% of 2019 and we are expecting a positive increase especially with the upcoming festive season and school holidays.

We encourage everyone to take advantage of this additional capacity and experience the joy of reuniting with their loved ones as we are committed to supporting the Government of Malaysia in making travel accessible for the rakyat.”
