Malaysia Airlines has launched its ‘Bonus Side Trip’ programme, which allows passengers to break their long-haul flight to Australia or New Zealand and explore another destination at minimal extra cost.
Passengers booking a flight to Australasia from the UK with the airline can discover Western Malaysia by adding a return flight from Kuala Lumpur to Penang, Langkawi, Terengganu or Alor Setar on the way to their final destination. This coincides with the launch of Visit Malaysia 2020, an initiative to unite industry players behind a shared goal of welcoming 30 million tourists to Malaysia in 2020 to enjoy the country’s warm hospitality and cultural attractions.
Additional destinations beyond Malaysia are also available to customers through the programme, including Bangkok and Singapore.
Daniel Bainbridge, regional manager for UK and Europe for the airline said: “We now initiate the Bonus Side Trip programme, giving our passengers the fantastic opportunity to add an extra leg to their journey with a visit to a range of exciting locations across South East Asia on route to their final destination, at almost no extra cost.”
