How to fly to Malaysia or the Philippines for £381 return

Every so often, Jack Sheldon from Jack’s Flight Club selects a flight deal from the UK for Independent readers that you can’t afford to miss. This week: return flights to Malaysia or the Philippines for £381 return.

Take your pick between Kuala Lumpur and Manila this week with Etihad Airways. Both of these cities are great to visit, but they’re also a good jumping-off point for other locations in wider Malaysia and the Philippines. Explore islands such as Langkawi and Phuket in Thailand, which is cheap to connect to from Kuala Lumpur; while there are easy connections from Manila to hundreds of amazing beaches such as El Nido in the Philippines.

Pro tip

If you’re keen to visit the paradisiacal beaches of northern Palawan in the Philippines, but want to avoid the six-hour bus ride from Palawan Island’s only major airport, local carrier Air Swift has daily routes directly into town. These don’t show up on Google flights, but you can find the schedule and book directly from its website.
