KUCHING: Fans of the English Premier League (EPL) now have the chance to see their favourite teams live in action following Malaysia Airlines’ launch of its premier football package.
The package, starting at RM3,888 on a twin-sharing basis, currently offers deals to watch the home matches of nine EPL clubs - Arsenal, Charlton Athletic, Chelsea, Fulham, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur.
MAS sales executive Saleh Hassan said it was a great opportunity for football fans to go and see their teams.
“We are launching the package here so that diehard fans in Sarawak will know about it and not miss out on the chance to watch a match live in the stadium,” he said recently.
The package includes a return economy class ticket to London, two nights’ hotel accommodation, airport transfers and a match ticket.
Optional stadium tours, upgrades and extensions are also available.
However, the return flight is from Kuala Lumpur and fans from Sarawak will have to add on a domestic flight.
“The lowest Kuching-Kuala Lumpur return fare is RM338, which has to be purchased nine days in advance, or RM398 if purchased seven days ahead.
“Alternatively, our Internet fare of RM139 one-way can be purchased 14 days in advance,” Saleh said.
All fares exclude airport taxes and fuel surcharges.
The package is available for reservations and purchase from MAS-appointed agent Holiday Tours and Travel Sdn Bhd.
