Similarly, the national carrier said it will operate an additional extra flight between KL and Alor Setar on Aug 18, 2012.
MAS has also increased capacity on the Kota Bharu-KL route for those returning after the festive season.
From Aug 24 to 26 this year, one extra B737 flight will be operated on this route while another flight will be upgraded on Aug 24 to offer more capacity.
On Aug 27, MAS will offer two additional 737 flights on this route.
The national carrier said it would continue to monitor the booking trend during this festive season and will further increase capacity if there was additional demand. — Bernama
