The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC) through Tourism Malaysia today launched the Tourism Recovery Plan 2022 for the Air Transport Cluster in an effort to boost domestic tourism as it transitions to the endemic phase.
The Tourism Recovery Plan 2022, which is a continuation of the Economic Stimulus Package (PRE 1.0), is one of the initiatives under the Tourism Industry Recovery Plan which involves the distribution of incentives to Malaysians in the form of discounts, vouchers and rebates.
Under the Air Transport Cluster, an estimated 45,879 Malaysians have the opportunity to redeem e-vouchers worth between RM25 to RM100 through the purchase of flight tickets online involving five airlines from July 1 to December 31.
The five airlines are Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Batik Air (Malindo Air), Firefly and MASwings. Ticket purchases can be made either through the app or the airlines’ website.
Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, YB Dato’ Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri said, the launch of this initiative aims to attract the interest of the public, especially Malaysian families to continue booking air transport tickets at special discounted prices.
“The strategic collaboration established by Tourism Malaysia with these airlines is aimed at stimulating the recovery of the tourism industry, thus helping the country’s overall economic recovery,” she said.
Malaysia Airlines (MAS) will be promoting an e-voucher offer worth RM100 for 10,000 users while Firefly and Batik Air will each offer a redemption of RM50 for 4,000 passengers. As many as 4,000 MASwings users can redeem e-vouchers worth RM25. The offer for flight tickets involving MAS, Firefly, Batik Air and MASwings is limited to one redemption only.
However, Malaysians can redeem a maximum of up to three times for an e-voucher offer worth RM50 involving AirAsia’s one-way or two-way flight targeted at 23,879 passengers.
Redemption of e-vouchers offered by all these airlines is limited to the domestic aviation sector only.
