The Airport Staycation is an effort by Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad to turn the Kuala Lumpur International Airport into a vacation destination for Malaysians looking for a weekend away from home. This campaign began last August during the Merdeka weekend, in collaboration with Sama-Sama Hotel KLIA and KLIA’s Airport Fire Rescue Services (AFRS).
The first Airport Staycation was sold out in two days. Due to popular demand, the Airport Staycation is back this month to provide an opportunity for those who missed out last month to experience a weekend of wholesome family fun at KLIA and a luxurious stay at Sama-Sama Hotel KLIA.
Slotted for 26 and 27 September 2020, the Airport Staycation offers a 2-days/1-night family fun staycation with breakfast in bed for a family of four consisting of parents and two children below the age of 11, all for RM440 nett.
Just like the first Airport Staycation, there will an array of fun and attractive activities for the whole family to enjoy during their stay at the hotel and tour of KLIA.
The main attraction for this campaign is the exclusive tour of the Airport Fire Station on airside where children can experience first-hand being a “firefighter”. The first Staycation attracted parents and the children to experience the roles and responsibilities of the AFRS themselves.
This includes riding on the magnificent fire truck to learning how to use firefighting equipment. The children would also be trained how to escape from a burning building in a simulation activity.
This may sound dangerous for children, but don’t worry as everything will be conducted in a controlled and safe environment. During the first Airport Staycation last month, there were children who insisted on going for a second round.
For children who enjoy cooking, the Chef Cilik programme is also back where kids will learn and show off their culinary skills.
For parents, there will be special access to the KLIA Crazy Sales, a special 50% discount on family dining at the restaurants in Sama-Sama Hotel as well as free and easy access to the swimming pool.
The Airport Staycation is happening on 26 and 27 September 2020. Booking is open now and those interested may call the Reservation Department of Sama-Sama Hotel at 03-87873333 or drop an email to [email protected].
