Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has agreed to provide a 20% rebate on domestic airfares for students, teachers, and lecturers who will be returning to schools and campuses soon.

According to senior minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, the discount for teachers and lecturers are applicable for online bookings made between 9 July to 10 August, with the travel period being from 10 July to 30 November. “Discounts can be enjoyed through online booking by keying in a promo code that will be announced by the government soon,” he said.

Meanwhile, students can get their 20% discount through the MHexplorer programme, which requires you to sign up first if you’re not yet a member. The programme, which is a fully digitised student travel programme by MAS, will allow students to enjoy the discounted fare until 30 November or until their membership expires.

“I thank Malaysia Airline’s management for agreeing to offer discounted fares to teachers, lecturers, and students, and I hope other airlines will also follow in their footsteps,” said Datuk Seri Ismail.

Datuk Seri Ismail further explained that the discount is provided only until 30 November because most schools and universities are expected to reopen by then, if not earlier. “Schools, for example, will reopen fully by 22 July. For higher education institutions, the minister will be making an announcement soon. Hence, those involved will be travelling in the near future, and not later,” he said.

Earlier this week, Datuk Seri Ismail had issued a request for airline companies to adjust their flight prices back to pre-movement control order (MCO) levels following public outcry over inflated airfares. Alongside that, he’d also called on the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) to negotiate special ticket prices for students, teachers, and higher education institute students who need to travel back to their institutions when classes resume.
