Every Day Low Fares By Malaysia Airlines

We read the news and visit the Malaysia Airlines website and extract the news for you.

Malaysia Airlines offer cheaper prices every day for Malaysian to travel locally by plane.

4th May 2008

Dear Malaysians,

I have an important announcement from Malaysia Airlines.

Everyday, and all around us, we are all feeling the pinch of how everything is getting expensive. We, at Malaysia Airlines, have decided that it is time we lowered our fares so that Malaysians can continue to travel.

We recently declared that Malaysia Airlines is transforming into a World’s Five Star Value Carrier and we promised that you will be able to enjoy 5 Star Service at a low price. Many people thought it would be impossible. Well, not anymore! Today we are ready to deliver on that promise.

LCCs operate by keeping their costs really low and passing some of these savings to passengers. But this means that passengers have to accept some sacrifices.

We believe there is a way for passengers to enjoy low fares and Malaysian Hospitality.

For the first time in our history, Malaysia Airlines is offering Everyday Low Fares. From the 5 th of May, we will offer zero fares on all our routes within Malaysia. Later we will offer very low fares on our regional routes within ASEAN. We have put aside up to 30 per cent of our seats for these special Everyday Low Fares.

To get these special fares, you only need to take 3 steps:

Step 1: Go to our website at malaysiaairlines.com as these fares are only available via the internet.

Step 2: You must buy the ticket at least 30 days before flight departure.

Step 3: Remember these tickets are non-refundable and the flight dates cannot be changed.

What we are now offering gives everyone a win-win situation. It helps us to meet our business objectives. And it provides our customers an excellent deal – you get to enjoy the best of both worlds – really low prices plus our 5 Star services – our food and beverages, entertainment, luggage allowances and other benefits that come with traveling on Malaysia Airlines.

I would like to personally invite you to click on malaysiaairlines.com



Yours sincerely,



Dato’ Sri Idris Jala
Managing Director/CEO
Malaysia Airlines

Malaysia International Halal Showcase (MIHAS)

Date : 11 May 2008 - 17 May 2008

Organiser:Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE),Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI)

Respected as a modern, peaceful and prosperous Islamic country especially among OIC member countries, Malaysia has the added advantage of championing the halal cause. Malaysia’s central position in Asia makes it an ideal trading platform to draw the world’s halal players in facilitating the sourcing and selling of global quality halal products through THE MALAYSIA INTERNATIONAL HALAL SHOWCASE (MIHAS).

This trade fair was pioneered in 2004 and congregates the largest annual gathering of halal industry players and entrepreneurs in the effort to ease the sourcing and selling of global quality halal consumables, products and services. It embraces the halal concept in all its dimensions from pharmaceuticals and herbal products, cosmetics and health care to Islamic investment, banking and takaful.

As an international trade fair focused on halal, MIHAS attracts a following of loyal visitors and exhibitors. MIHAS 2007 saw the active participation of 514 exhibitors from 26 countries and attracted a total of 36,792 visitors from 64 countries. Over 55% of these visitors are trade buyers and the who’s who in the food and beverage industry from the ASEAN countries.

Every year, MIHAS hosts over 400 buyers and matches them with participants of MIHAS from Malaysia. Last year, this programme resulted in immediate sales of over RM200 million with over RM400 million under negotiation.

Today, MIHAS is the premier event that is not limited to the ASEAN region alone but is also supported internationally by the enthusiastic participation of International Pavilions from countries across the globe. This has equipped MIHAS with the extra edge to break through barriers to enter young developing markets committed to serve the needs of the halal consumer and to reach a quality-conscious generation seeking quality halal food products.

MIHAS serves as the best entry point for the world market to penetrate the global Muslim market or embark into the ASEAN market. MIHAS is hosted by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), and organised by the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE).
