Malaysia Airlines has introduced enhanced Economy fare options, giving customers greater flexibility in choosing their fare requirements. Previously only available for domestic, ASEAN and South Asian destinations, the option has been extended to most international routes.

Economy fare options

The new Economy fare options for international routes are available from 22nd June 2020, except for Japan, Jeddah and Madinah.

The three fare options – Lite, Basic, Flex, offer the privileges and services of flying Malaysia’s premier full-service carrier across all fares and come with cabin baggage up to 7kg. Regardless of the fare band selected, passengers will still receive complimentary beverages and snacks or meals depending on the route and in-flight entertainment.

Malaysia Airlines Group CEO Captain Izham Ismail said the changes were made in response to customer feedback, adding that

……. With the world slowly recovering from the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic, and as our passengers begin to travel again, Malaysia Airlines seeks to take them to the skies without the burden of worry, with a truly hassle-free experience. …….. With this we hope to instill a sense of confidence and trust in them to Fly Malaysia once again. Captain Izham Ismail
