Following its announcement last week of three new routes to China set to launch in June, Malaysia Airlines has unveiled a new series of discounts on flights to China taking place between February 22 and August 20. These include the three new destinations – Nanjing, Wuhan and Fuzhou, which will launch on June 13, 20 and 26 respectively – along with flights to Haikou in Hainan, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Discounts of up to 25 per cent are available until February 28, 2017. All-in round-trip prices start at RM559 (US$125) for flights from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong, with fares for other flights sitting around the RM1,000-1,300 (US$224-292) range.

A 30kg baggage allowance, in-flight meals and entertainment are also included. Eligible flights comprise those from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong – on which Malaysia Airlines began deploying its Airbus A330-300 since November last year – as well as to Haikou, Fuzhou, Wuhan and Nanjing. Flights from Kota Kinabalu to Shanghai are also part of the promotion.
