To stand a chance to be upgraded, mothers travelling with at least one family member on a single booking and Passenger Name Record (PNR) will be invited to complete a data card with their name and other details upon check-in.
The completed cards will then be dropped into a box placed on the counter. Once the check-in counter is closed, the box will be brought onboard the aircraft and handed over to the cabin crew. Once all the passengers board the aircraft, the cabin crew will draw the names of the lucky mothers who will be upgraded to business class.
Malindo air chief executive officer Chandran Rama Murthy said this gesture to mothers on Mother’s Day was part of the airline’s commitment to build a strong emotional connection between the brand and passengers that engendered loyalty, create memorable experiences and bring the romance of travel back to the skies.
“As an airline brand, we hope to offer those who fly Malindo Air a platform to share connections and build memorable experiences with an airline founded on the foundations of Asian hospitality, world class service and innovative products,” he concluded.
Malindo Air currently operates a fleet of two state of the art Boeing 737-900ER (extended range) aircraft in a two class configuration of 12 seats in ‘Business’ and 168 seats in ‘Economy’.
All seats in economy are also fitted with In Flight Entertainment system (IFE) that offers guests 12 of the latest Asian and Hollywood movie blockbusters and 20 interactive games to choose from at no additional charge.
Check-in baggage allowance of up to 15kg and light refreshments are provided to all passengers travelling in the economy cabin.
