Malaysian Grand Travel Deal-Upto 30% off, last 2 days

Travel to Asia just got a whole cheaper thanks to a plethora of airlines competing against each other with super low fares in all their segments. Apart from LCC airlines like AirAsia (who has a strong foothold on the budget traveler segment) , full service carriers has also started on the price war to lure travelers. Recently two airlines including Malaysian Airlines and SriLankan Airlines had announced big sales offering a steep 30-50% off their usual fares. Both the airlines had earlier maintained a subdued status when it comes to price competition, but given the surge in tourism to Asia (especially South East Asian countries), the former has stepped up on the game. Incidentally Kuala Lumpur has become the hub (for more than three airlines) , including AirAsia, Malindo Air, Malaysian Airlines and also Garuda Indonesia (for connecting flights).

Malaysian Airlines Grand Travel deals

Travel Period : 23 Apr 2018 - 31 Mar 2019 |Booking Period ( till May 1st only)

Malaysian Airlines has announced a 30% sale on most flights till next March , esp to Malaysia, China, Japan and Indonesia. The sale is not only on economy but also on Business Class flights.
However the only rule is that , the fares are valid if you  book a return trip and not an one-way fare
One of the best fares I found in this sale was a return ticket fare from Chennai to Shanghai for just 21-22K. Given October- December was the best season to travel to China, I had booked mine for the same. As you can see, a business class flight which is usually 3-4 times of a economy ticket was just 10K extra and I could literally take a trip to China in business class (one way) for just 22K which to me is a steal, that too in a full service premium airline.

However, as mentioned earlier,  none of these fares are applicable if you are searching for a one-way ticket and the price is more than a return fare ( for the same date, same sector)

Note that promo fare on Malaysian includes 30 kg baggage allowance and meals, but these are non refundable. No refund. Seat selection and date change will cost extra.
Business Class Promo:
The business class promo by Malaysian airlines is definitely one of the best I’ve seen so far in my life. A “couple” return fare to major destinations like Bali from Chennai is just 51K (which works out to only 25K a person). This includes 14KG of hand luggage , lounge access privileges, gourmet food menu options, 40K of check in luggage and other luxury facilities given to every business class passenger. Even a “promo” economy fare in LCC’s usually cost 20K and this is something you shouldn’t miss for sure.

Other Asian sector fares in airlines including Scoot, SriLankan Airlines and Malaysian Airlines are as follows
  • ·         Korea (Seoul) : 29K
  • ·         Tokyo : 31K
  • ·         Vietnam (Hanoi) : 16,700
  • ·         Shanghai (Malaysian Airlines) : 22K
  • ·         Singapore : 10,000
  • ·         Jakarta (Indonesia) : 12,000
  • ·         HongKong : 21K
