MALINDO Air has set August 1 as the launch date for three new domestic operations from Subang – a twice-daily Alor Setar service and daily runs to Kuala Terengganu and Langkawi.
The routes will be run with the airline’s new ATR72-600 aircraft.
Chandran Rama Muthy, CEO of Malindo Air, said the launch of the new routes would provide the public with more travel options during the upcoming school holidays in August, which also coincide with Hari Raya celebrations.
Currently, Malindo Air’s turbo-prop operations connect Subang with Penang, Kota Bharu and Johor Bahru.
Chandran said: “Malindo Air’s emergence at Subang Skypark Terminal has been warmly received by the public. Our flights to Kota Bharu have been flying with more than 90 per cent capacity most of the time. Following such encouraging response since the launch of our Subang operations, we have decided to implement the new routes from Subang to Alor Setar, Kuala Terengganu and Langkawi.”
Earlier this month, Firefly announced it would add a Johor Bahru-Pekanbaru service and pad up its flight schedule with extra frequencies for the Hari Raya season (TTG Asia e-Daily, June 11, 2013).
