Malaysia Airlines’ Group Chief Revenue Officer Ignatius Ong spoke at the signing of the expense and confusion facing first time travellers. For students travelling overseas they are magnified and these partnerships help relieve some of the worries.
…. We have already seen great take up for our MHexplorer programme since its launch in October last year. Today, it has been expanded further to include even more exciting benefits for members. We understand the needs and concerns of our younger traveller and these partnerships go a long way in addressing them. Travelling can be expensive and confusing for the first time traveller.
