The Indulge Till You Fly Campaign promotes a priceless airport experience evolving around fabulous shopping, delectable dining and blissful relaxation sessions—all at Malaysia International Airports. Campaign spans 6 months from 24th July 2010 to 6th January 2011. Passengers shopping at any five (5) of Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad’s (Malaysia Airports) international gateways are in for some exciting treats as retailers and food and beverage outlets at the airports seek to entice and indulge them with their offerings. In conjunction with the official launch of the Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival on July 20th, Malaysia Airports introduced a brand new campaign spanning for the very first time at all the international airports namely KLIA, Penang, Langkawi, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu. Passengers shopping and dining at any of these airports can enjoy a variety of special offerings at prices that are aimed to please. According to Puan Faizah Khairuddin (pictured in magazine cover below standing), Senior General Manager Commercial Services:
“Malaysia Airports is committed in our support of Tourism Malaysia to promote the country as an exciting lifestyle holiday destination. We are introducing an exciting new campaign which underscores that Malaysia airports are not merely functional, but are also lifestyle destinations with a wide variety of offerings to meet one’s ‘retail therapy’ needs. We want our passengers to know that great shopping are not confined to the city. It could begin or end at our airports.”
Our day of convergence and indulgence began with a visit to Kuala Lumpur Sentral Malaysia’s largest world-class transit hub offering global connectivity and seamlessly linking all urban and suburban residential, commercial and industrial areas. It is also a direct link to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Putrajaya (the Federal Government Administrative Centre), Cyberjaya and key areas within the Multimedia Super Corridor. Such amazing connectivity has been established through direct access to six rail systems and links to major highways. Essentially, KL Sentral converges road, rail and air transports the latter of which allows international airline passengers a relatively short drive from their hotel within KL the convenience of early check-in [applicable to travellers on the following airlines: Malaysia, Royal Brunei, Cathay Pacific and Emirates].
Designed as an “airport in the city”, the Kuala Lumpur City Air Terminal (KL CAT) at KL Sentral station is truly an extension of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Air travellers can check-in for their flights in KL CAT, including baggage check-in just like in KLIA. The KLIA Express is a premium non-stop high-speed train service that connects Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the Kuala Lumpur city centre. Cruising at a top speed of 160 km/hr, the journey takes just 28 minutes, operating at 15-minute intervals during peak hours and 20 minutes during off-peak.
Making our way to the Satellite Building of KLIA where media personnel register and congregate for the Malaysia Airports Mega Fam/Malaysia Mega Sales Carnival presentation, stopped by an authentic Cuban cigar rolling demonstration.
It’s the world’s first “Pay-In Lounge” where all travelers, irrespective of airlines or travel class can enjoy the luxury experience of a business-class traveler. It was only then I found out that Plaza Premium Lounge operates at more than 40 locations in 12 international airports – Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Hyderabad, Johor, Kuala Lumpur, Muscat, New Delhi, Shanghai, Singapore, Toronto and Vancouver! Operating 24/7, this airport lounge network which is located on the Mezzanine Floor at the Satellite Building was the first to achieve the ISO 9001:2000 certification. Check out Plaza Premium Lounge for more information.
