Malaysia Airlines Offers Enhanced Flexible Fare Options

Malaysia Airlines has introduced enhanced economy class flexible fare options across its entire network.

It offers safety, security, flexibility and a complete hassle-free, premium experience based on the needs of each customer.


The Malaysian national carrier said the options, which were previously limited to domestic, Asean and South Asian destinations, would now see passengers have access to three unique fare options (Lite, Basic and Flex) for all destinations except Malaysia to Japan to Malaysia, Jeddah and Madinah, beginning June 22.

Malaysia Airlines group chief executive officer (CEO) Captain Izham Ismail said as the first airline in the Asia Pacific region to fully introduce flexible fare options across its network, these fares would allow greater personalisation for the passengers.

It also provides a simple and intuitive booking experience, alongside unforgettable Malaysian Hospitality onboard and on the ground, creating a stress-free and seamless travel experience.

“Passengers who arrive early at the airport will enjoy the flexibility of travelling earlier on the day of travel should the opportunity be available, allowing passengers to have fluid travel plans and not worry about fixed travel times,” a statement by the airlines said. “Most importantly, Flex Fare passengers enjoy the opportunity to skip the line, with priority check-in, boarding and baggage privileges as an added bonus, allowing them to skip the waiting line and the hustle and bustle of the crowd.”

Malaysia Airlines said the Neighbour Free Seat product was now available exclusively for Flex Fare passengers on all flights at 50 per cent off, allowing for extra room to travel in comfort, with physical distance onboard in mind.
