Kuala Lumpur, 17th February 2020 – Express Rail Link (ERL) has launched a new KLIA Ekspres Ride & Win Campaign in conjunction with the Visit Malaysia 2020 Campaign. The campaign, a collaboration with Marriott International hotels in Malaysia and supported by Tourism Malaysia, is open to all customers who buy KLIA Ekspres train tickets from 1 February 2020 to 31 December 2020.
Noormah Mohd Noor, Chief Executive of ERL said, “ERL is keen to play our part in promoting Malaysia as a preferred destination during this Visit Malaysia 2020 Campaign. However, the current COVID-19 outbreak has undoubtedly made people more cautious about travelling on public transport. We are taking all necessary measures to assure the travelling public that taking public transport is safe.”
During this period of heightened precautions, ERL is putting emphasis on five (5) key areas, namely, Passengers, Staff, Trains, Stations and Awareness. It is tripling the cleaning frequency of high contact areas at stations and using stronger disinfectants for cleaning and sanitising work onboard the trains. For more on the precautionary measures being taken by ERL currently, visit www.kliaekspres.com/2020/02/erls-briefing-on-2019-ncov-precautionary-measures/.
“The Ride & Win Campaign is intended to encourage more travellers to use the train for their airport transfer when visiting Kuala Lumpur. We have a range of packages which can cater to different travel needs and budgets, such as the Family Package, Group Saver and KL TravelPass. Travellers can also enjoy a 15% discount when buying selected tickets at the counter with Touch ‘n Go eWallet. The more tickets they buy, the more chances they get to win a hotel stay in Kuala Lumpur. We are fortunate to have Marriott International hotels in Malaysia as our hotel partner for this campaign. Winning a hotel stay at any one of the prestigious Marriott International hotels in the country will certainly make one’s trip to Malaysia more memorable. We are also thankful for the support extended by Tourism Malaysia.” Noormah added.
“It gives us great pleasure to partner with ERL for the Ride & Win campaign, in support of Visit Malaysia 2020. As the largest hotel group in Malaysia, Marriott International has a tangible footprint in some of the country’s most beloved destinations. The strategic collaboration with KLIA Ekspres is a wonderful way to access the diverse portfolio of our brands and experience our renowned hospitality, especially with Marriott Bonvoy, the all-in-one loyalty program built on the belief that travel enriches all and has the power to enrich the world,” said Cindy Yoong, Area Director of Marketing, South East Asia, Marriott International.
Participating hotels in the campaign include Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur, Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral, Element Kuala Lumpur, Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur, The Westin Kuala Lumpur, Sheraton Petaling Jaya, Le Méridien Putrajaya, and Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown.
