Malaysia Airlines has teamed up with TUI, the world’s number one tourism group, to launch MHholidays. MHholidays is the latest travel marketplace by Malaysia Airlines, allowing travellers to tailor-make their holidays through the combination of flights and hotels.

The launch event was held in Kuala Lumpur and attended by Malaysia’s Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Yang Berhormat Tuan Muhammad Bakhtiar bin Wan Chik, Malaysia Aviation Group Chief Operations Officer, Ahmad Luqman bin Mohd Azmi, and TUI Group Executive Board member, Frank Rosenberger.

For every kind of traveller – experienced or new, young or old – MHholidays makes it quick and easy to discover suitable travel options. With over 5,000 hotels and more than 50 destinations worldwide to choose from, travellers can unlock exclusive and affordable deals from Malaysia Airlines and save up to 80% off on hotels.

“We are delighted to team up with Malaysia Airlines to launch MHholidays. Not only will Malaysian travellers benefit from a vast array of new holiday opportunities via our Global Distribution Network, Malaysia Airlines will also reach new customer segments and generate additional revenue. At TUI, we create unforgettable moments for customers across the world and make their dreams come true – these holidays are now also available in Asia”, said Frank Rosenberger Member of the TUI Group Executive Board responsible for IT and Future Markets.

“Planning for your travels can be overwhelming, and that’s why MHholidays bundles its offerings by including over 5,000 accommodation partners ranging from budget hostels to luxury suites such as Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons, and more. Malaysia Airlines has committed to constantly improving its customers’ user-experience. Hence, travellers will find it easy to search, filter, and compare flights and hotels to find the perfect holiday package that best suits their needs. In addition to that, travellers booking packages on MHholidays will also earn Enrich miles on every flight segment, which they can redeem for future holidays. In the future, MHholidays will also be expanding beyond flights and hotels to include ground transfers, tours and more”, said Ahmad Luqman bin Mohd Azmi, Malaysia Aviation Group Chief Operations Officer.

MHholidays is based on a modern computer system having a Global Distribution Network as a backbone. It offers airlines impressive advantages. They can increase their load factors, reach new customer segments and generate additional revenue and margin while not having to create their own operational setup or additional operations. “We have jointly developed our ‘TUI 2022’ plan to be implemented within the next four years. We are planning to achieve 1 billion euros worth of additional turnover with 1 million new customers. This is an ambitious but realistic goal. TUI is seeking to tap new growth markets and expand its business in South East Asia, with Malaysia being a crucial partner country, where we can look back on 45 years of cooperation”, added Frank Rosenberger.
