Remember the days when you call up or go to a travel agent’s office just to book your air tickets? That’s like 1995 right?
Now, remember your last air ticket purchase? I am going to guess that you went to the airline’s website and did your booking online. That too, my friend is so 2010.
I do prefer Malaysian Airlines, KLIA is nice!
With facebook being the number one site in Malaysia (check the ranking here), MAS now introduce MH Buddy, a facebook application that allows you to book air tickets, check in, and more!
Just search for MHbuddy
To use this, you just need to be on facebook, my mom isn’t, but everyone else pretty much is.
To access MH Buddy , just go to your facebook search box and type MHbuddy, or use the URL: http://apps.facebook.com/mhbuddy
The application has several advantages over the traditional method. It is very focused, light, and fast when it comes to booking a flight. It’s just a simple 5 step process:
- Search your flight
- Confirm outbound flight
- Confirm return flight
- Traveler’s name/phone/email confirmation
Other than that, MH Buddy also allows you to check your flight booking, a handy feature especially if you’ve bought your tickets months earlier.
On the flight day itself, you can also do online check in to avoid those long queues at airport too.
very simple and intuitive user interface
These are both very handy features, but this facebook application has something up its sleeves that you can’t do on any airline’s website – checking and sharing flight information with your facebook friends who also uses MH Buddy.
This feature is great especially when you’re planning holidays with a group of friends who are purchasing tickets on their own, and you can also use the information to meet up with friends who happen to be traveling to the same locations too. Very nifty.
Now it’s time to plan another holiday! I dream of crystal clear water, sun, and the breeze… ahh!
