Malindo Air to Launch KL - Perth Flights

Malindo Air has announced that it will launch flights between Kuala Lumpur and Perth on 19 November 2015.

Malindo Air will initially operate a daily service between Perth and the Malaysian capital, increasing to 11 times per week from 3 December 2015.

The airline will operate the route with 180-seat Boeing 737-900 aircraft.

Malindo Air was launched as a joint venture between Malaysia’s National Aerospace and Defence Industries (NADI) (51%) and Lion Air of Indonesia (49%).

“We are delighted to welcome the first Malindo Air service to Australia,” said Brad Geatches, Chief Executive Officer, Perth Airport. “Last year, more than 300,000 passengers travelled between Perth and Malaysia, and it remains our fifth largest international market. Malaysia is a popular holiday destination and, combined with a large number of passengers also visiting friends and relatives, will continue as one of Perth’s core markets for many years to come. As the third carrier on the Perth to Kuala Lumpur route, Western Australians now have more options than ever before when travelling to Asia and onward to other destinations.”
