Airline tickets to Malaysia

Fly to KL with Malaysia Airlines

Nowadays the ticket price is best affordable when booked a long time up front. Don't expect that many so called 'last-minutes' flights to Malaysia. Last-minutes are very common when heading over to European destinations like Spain, Turkey or Egypt, but not so common in Malaysia. Every now and then airlines have special rebates; make use of this when booking your ticket. For example; when Singapore Airlines celebrated their first ever flight with the Airbus A380 they sold tickets for their regular flights for a symbolic €380, - This action period only lasted a month. Other airlines sometimes have similar offers, but chances are slim you will ever fly from Europe to Asia for only €380,-.
