TRAVEL SMARTER WITH THE NEW UPGRADED flyKLIA.com

KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) today announced the launch of their new enhanced online travel portal, flyKLIA.com providing travellers with an even smarter planning tool to find the best flight and hotel deals for their next holiday or business trip.

Dedicated to serve the needs of the world’s travellers, flyKLIA provides unlimited flight options to any destination in the world at the cheapest price and the best routes, with just a click of a button. Through flyKLIA, travellers can immediately compare prices and choose their preferred route and airline without the hassle of searching multiple websites. This includes delivering a wide option of fare results that can cater to travellers who prefer full-service airlines or low cost carriers, or a mix and match of one-way fares from different airlines.

Speaking about the enhanced search portal, Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad of Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad said, “With the significant improvements made on flyKLIA.com, we are pleased to present a more interactive and engaging search engine that can provide faster, cheaper and simpler travel solutions to the world’s teeming millions.

“All this is part of our aim to ease the planning process for travellers who are spending more time to search both low cost airlines and full service airlines’ websites, so they can build their own itineraries with the cheapest fares and best routes. In essence, we are empowering discerning travellers through flyKLIA.com, to give them more confidence to own their travel decisions.”

flyKLIA.com is part of MAHB’s long term vision, KLIA Next Generation Hub, an unprecedented move to position KLIA as a unique hub where all routes, all airlines and all terminals will connect seamlessly in the future.  This is made possible through the simple act of integrating the best of KL International Airport (KLIA), one of the region’s most competitive airports with Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), the leading low cost airport in Asia Pacific.

“By bridging the two worlds of full service airlines and low cost carriers through flyKLIA, we are presenting travellers with many new exciting ways to see the world. And the best part about flyKLIA is that this service is offered at no charge to travellers,” added Bashir.   

Apart from the enhanced flight search function on flyKLIA.com, other new features include:

·        Just For KL! designed for travellers who just want to explore places and prices going to and from Kuala Lumpur. The cheapest air fares of the day are displayed by dates across several months.
·        Expanded hotel search function which sources results from more than 150,000 properties worldwide including hotels, motels, hostels/backpackers, resorts, serviced apartments, and villas. In addition, the ‘Live Price Comparison’ feature allows travellers to access real-time room rates and instant availability of rooms while hotel reviews are aggregated from multiple websites to present balanced views.
·        Eyes on Malaysia and Eyes on Asia features top destinations to inspire
·        Great hotel and travel packages so travellers can save even more

Bashir concluded by saying, “We are leading the way to a better tomorrow with new benchmarks set through flyKLIA. Not only are we making KLIA distinct from the other airports but we also familiarising travellers with the strength of KLIA’s network. In addition, with LCCT’s transition to KLIA2, the future is certainly looking brighter.”

“The new way to the world is indeed through the heart of Asia - KLIA.”
