The app is supported across iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Symbian. So users on these platforms can book their destinations from anywhere in the world, and MAS is hoping to rollout support for seven more currencies soon, so international users can book their destinations as well.
In 2011, MAS' MHmobile app saw an increase of 500% in average daily bookings via the app. MAS' Executive Vice President, Marketing & Promotions, Al-Ishsal Ishak, hopes with PayPal’s payment system that it will 'grow more than 500%'.
And to commemorate the launch, MAS' mobile app users, who book their tickets from 5th July to 5th October, will be rewarded with 500 Enrich miles per transaction. And within that period, all travellers will be offered promo fares, domestic flights will start as low as RM150 and RM340 for ASEAN destination.
