Malaysia Airlines Increases KL-Phuket Services

International fliers who are often to be seen in a look out for tickets on scheduled flights to travel between the popular Far East destinations of Malaysia and Thailand are certainly a happy lot. One of the highly acclaimed full service carriers; Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has recently announced to offer tickets for increased weekly flights frequency between Malaysia’s capital city of Kuala Lumpur and Phuket in Thailand with effect from June 1, 2013. 

The popular Malaysian carrier has started offering tickets aboard 26 weekly flights on the popular travel sector. With one new daily service, the budget carrier is all set to tap the increasing travel demand on the route.

The new flight, MH798 will depart daily from KL at 4.55am arriving in Phuket at 5.10am while the return flight MH799 will depart Phuket at 6.15am arriving in KL at 8.45am. Meanwhile, the existing flight MH794 departs from KL at 1.05pm arriving in Phuket at 1.20pm.

The airline has deployed its Boeing 737-800 aircraft with two-class configuration on the sector. The operator is now offering tickets for 144 economy class seats and 16 business class seats aboard its flights on the route. 

Industry insiders believe that the higher availability of reasonably priced economy class seats aboard Malaysia Airlines’ flights on the route will catch the fancy of budget vacationers who wish to relish airline’s swanky in-flight services and products but end up booking tickets with cheap airlines in order to not inflate their travel bills.
