Etihad Holidays, a division of Etihad Airways, and Tourism Malaysia have joined forces to launch a joint campaign to promote Malaysia as a holiday destination to the UAE market.

To support the new promotion, Etihad Holidays has announced a series of special Malaysia packages with lead-in fares starting from AED 1995 (US $544) per person, which includes three nights' accommodation, a return economy class airfare, hotel transfers and breakfast daily.

Etihad Holidays general manager Tony Gauci said: "Working jointly with Tourism Malaysia on this campaign will benefit both companies enormously because we will be able to share expertise and resources to help attract more visitors to this wonderful destination.

"In addition to the strong cultural ties with the UAE, our customers will enjoy the world-class hotels on offer in Malaysia as well as flying to Kuala Lumpur with Etihad Airways from our home-base in Abu Dhabi."

Tourism Malaysia director Tuan Razali Tuan Omar added:" We are very proud to work closely with the UAE's national airline and tourists will certainly enjoy Malaysia's fascinating festivals and activities. We will continue to support Etihad Holidays efforts to promote Malaysia in this region."

Etihad Holidays' special fares to Malaysia include AED 2095 ($572) for three nights at the three-star Dorsett Regency, AED 2115 ($576) at the four-star Renaissance Hotel and AED 2275 ($620) at the four-star Sunway Lagoon.

At the higher end of the scale, customers can book a three-day break at the five-star JW Marriott from as little as AED 2345 ($639) per person and the Mandarin Oriental from AED 2765 ($753).

Etihad Holidays is encouraging the travel trade to offer these promotions to clients.
