  3. Hi,

    I am a Grads Card holder but I have not renewed my card since I did not go back to Malaysia last summer. How do I renew my Grads Card so that I can enjoy the benefits on this coming July when I want to fly back to Malaysia? I am currently staying in the UK. I hope you can help me.

    Thank you.

    Reagards,
    Nadiah.

    • @Siti Nadiah Mustapa: Renewal of Grads Card is not automatic and you have to re-apply by following the same application procedures and fee apply. The payment of USD 20 can be made at your nearest Malaysia Airlines ticket office in the UK. For applications outside Malaysia, only cash, credit or charge cards are accepted. You also can send email to grads@malaysiaairlines.com for further information.

  4. how long i can get the card after application?

    • @siti norezan: Once the application form is received and processed, the welcome pack will be mailed to members within 3 days for local addresses and 10 working days for international addresses.

  5. the discount is applied to the fare of the air ticket itself right? i mean it doesn’t include the taxes and surcharge right? also, do you think it is cheaper with this card than Airasia?

    • @Chloe: For your info, MAS Airlines is all-inclusive-fare ticket whereas the ticket is inclusive of taxes & surcharge already. Sometimes, the MAS fare is cheaper than AirAsia. :)

  6. is there a limitation on places that we can go? how many discounts we are entitled to?

    • @Meme: If I’m not wrong, it’s up to 50 percent discounts on domestic economy class airfares. Kindly confirm with MAS Airlines again. :)

  7. Im not get it. So the 50% off of the price of the fare + taxes ? Is that so?
    I mean 50% off is it the fare charge(ticket) price only or with the taxes (total price) .. TQ..

  8. And one more thing, the enrich card, can we use it for other airlines also like air asia or other transportation?

  9. Can i use the Enrich card via website to purchase my ticket??

  10. ‘Once the application form is received and processed, the welcome pack will be mailed to members within 3 days for local addresses and 10 working days for international addresses.’

    Is the period for processing included in the 3 days? Does anyone know the account number for MALAYSIAN AIRLINE SYSTEM BERHAD for payment via cash deposit? Thank you.

  11. How can I apply the grads card ?

  12. is this grad card still available ?
