Statement from MAS today, Sunday, that they are offering promotional fares to everyone for its business and economy class from today until end of this year.
With this new fares, a return economy class from Kota Kinabalu to Seol Korea is RM994, and RM998 to Haneda/Tokyo and RM1,100 to Perth Australia. I think flight out to Perth is the most attractive one to enjoy the summer in West Australia.
I think this is the best deal so far from MAS for their international flight out of Kota Kinabalu. We hope this promotion will be extended to other international destination soon.
And all fares are inclusives of taxes and surcharges. ohh wow..so flying to Perth this coming December is very cheap. I don't see any reason why this is not attractive. Unfortunetely I already bought my flight ticket to Hanoi Kota Kinabalu, otherwise traveling to Perth would be my best choice for holiday this year. My return flight ticket from Kota Kinabalu to Hanoi was RM954, almost the same cost to Perth Australia (full in-flight services including the food) with MAS a direct flight from Kota Kinabalu.
According to MAS the promotional fares were to encourage travelers to book and pay for thier non-stop flight from Kota Kinabalu and still enjoy full in-flight services at no extra cost during thier travel.
Now this is very interesting. If this promotion continue, I can see now that Airasia is also offering the same services and fares for thier international flight from Kota Kinabalu. Competition is good after all :)
Anyway to cut the story short, Malaysia Airlines operates daily flight to Taipei and Hong Kong, four times weekly to Seol, three times weekly to Haneda/Tokyo and Perth and twice weekly to Osaka from Kota Kinabalu.
