Cheaper airfares from MAS and AirAsia for all undergrads

The Higher Education Ministry has clarified that the special airfare rebate of 50% on Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flights is open to private university students as well.

Minister Datuk Mustapa Mohamed said yesterday that the offer is given in conjunction with the start of the new academic term in June and July.

He added that it was open to students at both public and private universities as well as those studying in polytechnics and community colleges. The rebate is until July 31 for all domestic destinations.

“To receive the rebate, students must make their reservations early, at least five days before their expected flight date,” he said in a statement.

AirAsia is also having a special fare for students departing from Kuala Lumpur or Johor Baru to Sabah and Sarawak. The fare is between RM69 and RM99, not including taxes, surcharges and other fees.

“For those flying AirAsia, they must make their reservations between June 21 and July 9 and fly between June 29 and July 16. They must also purchase their tickets at least seven days before their flight dates,” said Mustapa.
