KUALA LUMPUR (April 16): Malaysia Airlines will extend rebooking dates for eligible passengers due to the prolonged Movement Control Order (MCO) and interstate travel ban.
In a statement today, the carrier said it is offering passengers a longer ticket validity with a one-time fare difference and service fee waiver, following the prolonged travel restrictions imposed by countries and interstate travel for domestic destinations.
It said eligible passengers can now rebook their travels on or before Dec 31, 2021 for travels to be completed by June 2022.
Malaysia Airlines previously offered passengers the flexibility to rebook their travels on or before June 30, 2021 for travels to be completed by Dec 31, 2021.
It added that customers planning to make advance bookings for their future travels are encouraged to opt for Economy Flex tickets, adding this is due to the benefit of unlimited date changes with no additional charge, free refunds, priority check-in and boarding as well as a 35kg check-in baggage allowance.
The airline said it will be introducing a fully contactless journey progressively with innovative features to its passengers’ experience including the Digital Travel Health, which will streamline passengers’ journey with Covid-19 related policies worldwide to ensure passengers’ travel eligibility before they embark on their travels.
