As Beautiful Holidays is based in Malaysia, we have teamed up with the national carrier, Malaysian Airlines (MAS) to offer you discounted flights from your country to Malaysia. In 2000 readers of Conde Nast Traveler ranked Malaysian Airlines No. 1 for comfort & service amongst the top 10 airlines on the Trans-Pacific routes. This year MAS staff clinched the overall 'Best Cabin Staff 2002' award in an international airline survey conducted by Skytrax Research of London, UK. It was also voted to the first position in the ranking for the 'Best Cabin Staff 2002' in the Asian region.
Another accredited International Airlines that serves Penang is Singapore Airlines. Singapore Airlines (SIA) won the coveted OAG Airline Of The Year award for the fourth time.
When to Book
We would also advise you to book as early as possible. For example if you make a reservation three months prior to your departure we may be able to offer you greater discounts, or we can pass on any other benefit that the airline may offer.
To reach Penang from Europe or the US, a stopover is required in either Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. Malaysian Airlines flies daily to Penang via Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital and Singapore Airlines flies daily directly from Singapore.
Both the international airports in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur are of a very high standard including Internet and comprehensive shopping facilities. Both airports are well connected to their respective cities by state of the art rail systems that began operation in 2002.
In our Longer Trips section there is the possibility of a stopover for 2 or 3 nights both in Kuala Lumpur and in Singapore. You may want to take advantage of your visit to Asia and visit one or both of these magnificent cities after your surgery.
