Wealthy Malaysians are going to have a field day this Raya season with a unique new service catered especially to them.
Everyone knows how overwhelming the traffic jams can get during the Raya season, and so a helicopter service has been made available for rent to those who can afford the convenience.
The ‘Balik Raya Elak Jam’ campaign is brought to you by the Hazmi Dismasyq Group. The company, run by 31 year-old Hazmi Hanipa, has been running helicopter and private jet rental services catered to businessmen for about 3 years.
“This is the first year we decided to offer the service in conjunction with Hari Raya,” he explained.
He currently has 11 bookings with the most popular route being from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Bharu. The service commences on the 3rd of June with a one-way journey to Kelantan priced at about RM30,000.
The company has prepared 20 helicopters for the Raya season as compared to their usual 6 helicopters a day, though Hazmi was not expecting the demand to be as high.
Flights are currently priced at RM17,000 an hour and can carry up to 6 people per trip, while trips from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Bharu can take up to 3 hours.
I don’t think I’d be able to afford a trip… Unless if I were to sell a kidney!
