Excellent economy class fares on offer
As with all their sales in the past, Malaysia Airlines is offering very good value economy class fares to destinations such as Tokyo from S$470, Osaka from S$476, Seoul from S$469 and London Heathrow from S$838. Sub S$500 fares to both Korea and Japan are an excellent deal although the compromise is that you’ll have to make a stop in Kuala Lumpur on both legs of your journeys. Fares to Australia and New Zealand are also going for quite a good price during this sale with Melbourne from S$500 and Auckland from S$855.
Malaysia Airlines primarily flies their Airbus A330s to destinations such as Tokyo, Seoul and Melbourne, however, they also fly their new Airbus A350 aircraft to Tokyo on select days as well as to London. Economy class is configured in a 2-4-2 on their A330s and in a 3-3-3 on their A350s.
Excellent business class fares too
As with their previous sale, there are always excellent business class fares to be taken advantage of during this sale. Tokyo is once again back with fares starting from S$1,220. Fares to Seoul are also quite competitive too with fares beginning from S$1,219. These business class fares are good as during the high seasons of the school holidays, economy class fares on Singapore Airlines can be priced almost the same or sometimes even higher than these business class fares that are being offered by Malaysia Airlines, so it’s always good to do your homework and who knows maybe you’ll save some money by choosing to fly Malaysia Airlines business class. (The irony of saving money while flying on business class)
The business class experience on the Malaysia Airlines A330s should be a good one (they’ve just opened a new lounge in KUL), Aaron has previously reviewed this on his flight to Narita last year and found the seats that they’re using to be fairly comfortable. If you’re flying with Malaysia Airlines in business class, you can also take advantage of their Chef on-Call offerings which work in the same way as SQ’s Book the Cook.
There is certainly some value to be had with these fares that Malaysia Airlines are offering, especially on the flights to North Asia with business class flights starting from S$1,000 thereabouts. Given that these are valid until next year, there’s no time like the present to start planning your holidays.
Just a reminder again that fares must be booked by 6 May 2018 and tickets are valid for travel from now until 31 March 2019. You could use these cards below to maximize your miles earning when performing your bookings on the Malaysia Airlines website.
