announcement made in Sept last year, we don't have to wait for May for more travel choices when Malaysia's second low-cost carrier, Malindo Air, gets on board.
Today, Malindo Air takes to the skies with its maiden flight taking off from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu at 6:50am.
Set up as a hybrid airline, Malindo Air stands between full-service airlines and low-cost carriers. In our local context, Malindo Air is in between Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia. Still,
Malindo Air gives travellers another choice of air travel at a lower fare.
Malindo Air is a joint-venture between Malaysia's Nadi Sdn Bhd and Indonesia's largest domestic carrier, Lion Air parent PT Lion Grup. The airline will be operating the Boeing 737-900ER airplanes, which have a capacity of 180 seats each and capable of serving destinations within a five and a half hour range. There is also provision for business class.
All flights will take off from KL International Airport.
