Malaysia Airlines is flying three daily flights from Kuala Lumpur to Bali from Wednesday, with the additional flight departing Kuala Lumpur everyday at 12.25pm and arriving in Bali at 3.20pm.
Its senior general manager, network and revenue management, Dr Amin Khan, said customers could now travel anytime at their convenience as the daily flights were timed every three hours, with departures at 8.45am, 12.25pm and 3.20pm.
He said in a statement today that demand had been picking up, especially with passengers from other countries flying to Kuala Lumpur and connecting onwards to Bali.
"Our load factor is strong at 80 per cent, which is 10 per cent higher compared to the same time last year," Amin said.
"With the year-end break around the corner, we expect customers to snap up the tickets to the holiday resort," he said.
In conjunction with the additional flight, the national carrier is offering its "weekend getaways", a special promotional fare to Bali starting from RM480 and available until Dec 28, 2009.
The travel period will be from now until Dec 31, 2009.
In view of increased demand, MAS has also increased its flight frequency to Tawau and Sandakan in Sabah as well as Taipei, Seoul and Colombo, Amin said.
"The airline has also started offering three weekly direct flights to Istanbul," he said.
