MORE than one million seats at zero or nominal fee are up for grabs during Malaysia Airlines’ ‘Never Before Asean’ promotion covering its Asean destinations and selected routtes between Malaysia and China.

MAS northern region area manager Wan Mohd Ebrahem said the promotion was for travels between July 1 and Dec 14 booked online.

“Instead of wasting unsold seats, we are offering them at zero or low fares so that customers who would normally not fly would now have an opportunity to do so,” he said.

Ebrahem said passengers who reserved tickets under this promotion would be entitled to the same in-flight benefits as regular fare- passengers.

“It’s a value-added opportunity and passengers get good return for their money,” he added.

The destinations covered under this promotion are Bandar Seri Begawan, Bangkok, Brisbane, Cebu, Denpasar, Dhaka, Guangzhou, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Karachi, Manila, Medan, Perth, Phnom Penh, Phuket, Shanghai, Siem Reap, Singapore, Surabaya and Yogyakarta.

Retired senior manager Ng Choo Hee said he would be taking ad-vantage of the promotion by brin-ging forward his travel plans for next year to this year.

Flight reservations must be made at least 30 days before departure. For enquiries, visit or call their 24-hour centre at 1-300-88-3000.
