KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 12 ― Malaysia Airlines will be offering flights from Penang to Kota Kinabalu and Kuching from November 18, 2016.
The national carrier, in a statement today, said the route would be operated on a seasonal basis to coincide with the peak holiday period until December 2016.
The service resumes again during the Chinese New Year period.
Both Penang-Kuching and Penang-Kota Kinabalu services will be operated four times weekly, it said.
To commemorate the service, Malaysia Airlines will be running a seven-day sale, offering guests travelling from Penang to Kota Kinabalu with fare from as low as RM169 and to Kuching from as low as RM129, one way all-inclusive on Economy Class.
The fare includes complimentary 30kg check-in baggage, meals and free of credit card charges.
