Top tips for finding cheap flights to Malaysia

  • Book at least 4 weeks before departure in order to get a below-average price.
  • High season is considered to be January, November and December. The cheapest month to fly from the United States is April.
  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Malaysia flight deals.
  • Malaysia is a country split into two distinct parts, Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo. It is important for you to first do extra research of where you are visiting since the two parts aren't connected by land.Those visiting Peninsular Malaysia can use airports such as Kuala Lumpur International Airport, while those visiting Malaysian Borneo can use Kota Kinabalu.
  • Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) provides a range of handicapped-accessible amenities for passengers flying from the USA to Malaysia. Each of the parking garages at this airport's terminals has spots and amenities specifically for those with disabilities.
  • There are easy immigration processes for travelers visiting Malaysia compared to other Southeast Asian countries. You won't need a visa to travel to Malaysia for a stay of fewer than 90 days.
  • Anyone looking to unwind while waiting for a trip from the USA to Malaysia should stop by any of the Salt Lake City International Airport’s lounges. Delta Sky Club is one of the lounges that is highly appreciated by travelers traveling in economy classes from Salt Lake City International Airport to Malaysia. Distinctive class passengers can consider making a stop in the Centurion lounge.
  • Malaysia has an array of international airports. They include Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Kota Kinabalu International Airport, and Penang International Airport. The main airport here is the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, a major aviation hub in the region. It is approximately 30 miles from the capital, Kuala Lumpur.
  • Travelers who enjoy going on shopping excursions should consider flying into Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI) when they visit Malaysia. This airport is close to several high-end shopping centers that frequently have discounted sales offers, which makes shopping in Malaysia simple.
  • More than half of the population here is Muslim, and therefore Ramadan is widely observed. Even though there is no strict observation of Muslim rules (Malaysia is not very conservative), traveling to Malaysia around this time might cost you more.
  • Consider booking a hotel near BKI Airport if your flight from the US to Malaysia is scheduled to arrive late at night. The Napzone KKIA by Sovotel Hotels is one of the highly convenient lodging options for travelers from BKI Airport. You may conveniently reach this hotel within three minutes on foot.
  • It is possible to find direct flights from Washington to Malaysia. However, flying to an airport such as Kota Kinabalu might require two or more stops. You can weigh your options and book a flight through KAYAK.
  • Malaysia Airlines is the airline of choice for the majority of passengers traveling with their children from the USA to Malaysia. Kids may stream live versions of their favorite movies, songs, or TV shows from the USA to Malaysia with this airline's free in-flight Wi-Fi.

Wish plane type had more restrooms… Care and consideration from stewards and stewardesses was so great

Wish plane type had more restrooms… Care and consideration from stewards and stewardesses was so great

The best way to travel a long intercontinental flight. Staff are kind, polite and welcoming. Passengers experience a comfortable low stress environment, Customers feel they are well cared for by a highly trained and professional staff. I will shout from the rooftops when I get back home, "Japan Air is the way to go!"

Pros: "The flight attendants are the most professional and attentive employees I've ever had the pleasure to be served by."
Cons: "The movie selection could have been much better for such a long flight."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the food was delicious and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Boarding was awful. The staff definitely need better training at adapting with the Covid 19 situation. Especially, when it comes to unexpected occurrences regarding test certificates and sudden new regulations. Not everything is always black and white and not everyone has the same capacity to afford rebooking flights or re-testing. Treatment of foreigners in general at the LAX airport, on my flight at least, were unprofessional and inconsiderate. I generally like flying with Japan Airlines but after what I have seen and experienced personally I’m not so sure it is still one of my number one airlines to fly with anymore."
Cons: "I received a scam ticket. I could not board and had to use another airline and flight website to find another ticket."
Pros: "The crew was great and entering and exiting the plane was quick."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable, but I feel like that is a comment for most planes that fly internationally."
Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."
Cons: "Business class seats not very long if you are tall. Western meal option is not really very western. Crew is a little too efficient- got woken up 90 minutes before landing to clear the mattresses. Lots of announcements- a bit too much. On time, and quick to respond to requests. Sake was good as was the ramen."
Pros: "The crew and food was amazing, with ample entertainment selections."
Cons: "Seats. For some unknown reason, JAL uses different seats on this 787-8 flight from NRT-SAN that's 2-3 inches less in pitch than all of their other planes. This was not comfortable on a 9-hour+ flight. The flight attendants also woke us up everytime food was served so we could recline up seats."
Cons: "The crew members could have been more courteous to clients on the flight by lowering their voices when conversating among themselves."
Pros: "Crew was amazingly nice, friendly and very helpful..."
Cons: "The 767 business class seat from Tokyo to Jakarta could be better. Movies and other entertainment needs more variety. Not enough movies..."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the cheerful and helpful crew. And i love that the gate agent gave me a seat up front, near the front of the plane because she knew that i had a short connection and needed to catch my next flight."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Some announcements were made only in Korean, would have been helpful to also have English on international flight."
Cons: "A330 business class seats ate almost lay flat. Seats are older and don’t fully flatten out anymore"

Cons: "More movie selections"
Pros: "The crew was A+, food was tasty and the amenities were great even for economy class."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants spoke really fast and hard to understand."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, and I was happy to be seated in a 2-person row."
Cons: "Nothing the crew could do- a lot of turbulence and food served past midnight!"
Pros: "Boarding was Great! Crew were also great. Food were ok. Entertainment were great."
Cons: "Snacks and foods were okay. Could have been a bit more, or add a bit more snacks."
Pros: "Food choices was very limited to beef and fish. We had a connecting flight for international and both leg has the same food choices."

Cons: "Nothing special about the food, but it's not a big deal. Would fly them again."
Pros: "Fortunately plane not full and was able to use adjacent seat(s)."
Cons: "The crew of ANA was incredible. I think it is my best flying experience to Asia"
Pros: "The ANA crew is pretty awesome. They are super nice and professional. I would 12 out of 10 travel with ANA again."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "I hated everything about this 8 hour flight. Going to and coming from Toyko. The seats were EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY uncomfortable. I had to keep adjusting my body because my lower back was in so much pain. I ordered a kosher meal for both my sister and I but they only bought it for her. When I asked where was mine they said they didn’t see my name when I was the one who bought the tickets. It was extremely frustrating. I will never fly on this airline again."
Cons: "The planes are pretty outdated especially the connecting flights from Narita to HKG"

I called 3 times to get headphones and they never came to give me any. The food was dry and we were only fed twice. I’m vegan/vegetarian so there wasn’t any options."
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was nice and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "On time is always nice. Overbooked someone in my seat when boarding. On arrival sat for a while to get into the gate on a flight that was already 90 minutes late"
Cons: "Food was great, flight attendant were very friendly and helpful and eager to make sure I was comfortable, ANA rocks as a awesome carrier; my goto airline when it’s time to cross the pacific again"
Cons: "I have encountered missing documents before departure in Singapore to KL. The check in crews very helpful, their knowledge to assist me boarding smoothly. My appreciation towards all crews who have helped me this morning ( SQ106) Big THANK YOU to you ALL."
Pros: "Crews were great. Seats space could be better ... overall caring & attentiveness of crew members make a lot of difference."
Cons: "Food! 40 years ago Singapore Airlines was second to none in my book! Now I feel like I was away somewhere and Singapore Airlines has changed dramatically....Must be a lot of moving pieces have changed that I was wondering again during my journey whether I was really flying Singapore Airlines..."
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"
