PETALING JAYA – Malaysia Airlines will be offering 20 per cent discounted fares to facilitate voter movement for the 15th General Elections set for Nov 19.

In a statement on Thursday, the airline said it launched the Jom Balik Mengundi (Let’s go back to vote) campaign, which runs from Oct 20 to Nov 19 for travel from Nov 11 to 27.

The national carrier will also mount 26 additional flights and upgrade 16 domestic services to wide-body A330 aircraft to accommodate the surge in demand for several routes in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak.

The 20 per cent discount promotion is applicable on all fare categories and is available for booking via malaysiaairlines.com, the airlines said.

Primbondh/ November 13, 2022/ flight discount

Most travelers know that booking a flight at the last minute means paying through the nose. Travel experts, travel agents, online travel booking sites will all tell you that booking earlier is better.

Avelo Airlines to end service to Las Vegas

Primbondh/ November 6, 2022/ flight discount

Launched last January to a lot of fanfare, discount carrier Avelo Airlines will stop flying to Las Vegas later this year.

Avelo spokeswoman Courtney Goff said the flights did not generate the demand they had anticipated, adding that it was “a situation compounded by record-high fuel costs.”

The Redding-to-Las Vegas flights end Dec. 15.

“We will be refunding everyone booked past that date,” Goff said.

Avelo arrived in Redding in May 2021 when it started service to Hollywood-Burbank. Eight months later, the flights to Las Vegas started.

“The (Redding-to-Burbank) route is doing well and we will continue with its twice weekly frequency on Thursdays and Sundays. We do not have any plans to cancel this route at this time,” Goff said.

Avelo Airlines' inaugural Redding-to-Las Vegas flight was celebrated under foggy skies at Redding Municipal Airport on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022.

Goff said Avelo has recently canceled service in other cities for various reasons.

“Some cities it’s costs, demand, gate times at airports, block times, etc. It truly varies by

Primbondh/ July 27, 2022/ flight discount

With most Covid testing entry requirements lifted, and the U.S. dollar roughly equal to the Euro for the first time in 20 years, now might seem like the right time to plan a vacation in Europe. People are traveling more now than since the beginning of the pandemic, but many are facing higher costs of flying.

According to the travel booking site Hopper, domestic flight costs in summer 2022 are up 34% and international flights are up 2.5% compared to summer 2019, with the average round trip fare now costing $383 and $912 respectively.
