The airline, which flies to Australian destinations including Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane as well as multiple cities across Southeast Asia and of course Malaysia itself, launched its new student travel programme in October.

MHexplorer is designed for those aged 18-26 who want to travel the world. As a member, you can unlock exclusive privileges that are only available to those signed up to the programme. The perks are as follows:

  • Up to 20% off flights all year round - yes, that means you’re paying nearly a quarter less for your flights than everyone else

  • An additional 10kg of baggage - that’s on top of the usual amount that Malaysia Airlines offers as standard

  • A frequent flyer programme - offering points that can be exchanged for free flights every time you book

  • A complimentary flight change - in case your plans change, which we know they’re very likely to do - especially if you’re travelling for an extended period of time

  • Friends and family offers - four exclusive offers every year for your chums and your mum (and anyone else you deem worthy)

  • A free flight from Aus to anywhere on the Malaysian Peninsula - when you book flights to Australia using your membership

Pretty generous, we think.

And yes, the MHexplorer programme is free to join - you just need to sign up online, and you’ll be able to start using your discounts in two days.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not.

Here are some of the activities that you can find yourself doing if you take the plunge, join MHexplorer and book those flights next year…

You could be checking out the art on Ah Quee Street, Penang...

...or cycling through picture-perfect streets...

...and topping off your time with a temple visit or three.

You could be looking to the sky in Kuala Lumpur...

...or getting mystical at Mount Kinabalu...

...or swimming in the most dream-like of locales in Borneo...

...before taking a big hop over to arty Melbourne to watch the hot air balloons take over the evening sky.

You could be taking in the views of Sydney Harbour...

...or to the water in Brisbane:

And whilst you’re there, you should definitely get a picture of this iconic sign - otherwise, you might forget where you’ve been:

Make sure you grab a bowl of Laksa in… well, in any number of destinations that Malaysia Airlines flies to:

Oh, and don’t forget to swing by and say hello to these cheeky locals:
