Malaysia Airlines extends rebooking flexibility for passengers holding they’ve been unable to use because of continued Movement Control Orders (MCO). The latest lockdown affects the whole of Malaysia until at least 14th June. As Malaysians cannot travel interstate other than for essential purposes, Malaysia Airlines will operate limited service with 85% reduction across its network during this MCO. It will however continue to facilitate essential domestic and international travels as well as cargo movement.
Rebooking flexibility extension
In a statement issued on 4th June, the airline announced the extension of rebooking travel flexibility, offering customers longer ticket validity until 31st December 2022. This comes with a one-time fare difference and service fee waiver.
Eligible customers can now rebook their travels on or before 30th June 2022 for travel to be completed by 31st December 2022. This effectively adds another year to the validity of the current flexibility extension. Please refer to the airline’ travel advisory available on its official website for more information.
