Malindo Air has launched flights from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney via Denpasar in Bali.
Sydney marks the fifth city in Australia under Malindo Air’s network, after Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.
The daily flights between Sydney and Kuala Lumpur, via Denpasar, are operated using a Boeing 737-800/900 aircraft, comprising 12 Business Class and 150/168 Economy Class seats.
Chandran Rama Muthy, CEO of Malindo Air, said there was a strong trade market between Malaysia and Sydney, “hence this new route is likely to encourage many business travellers, given the strategic flight timings and a seamless journey”.
“We look forward to exploring more frequencies to and from Sydney in the near future,” he added.
Still in Australia, low fare Indonesian airline Citylink will launch a daily Denpasar to Perth service from October 28 with 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
CityLink is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Garuda Indonesia, which also flies the Perth-Bali route along with AirAsia, Jetstar and Batik Air.
