Malindo to launch KL-Amritsar flights

Chandran: ‘Apart from Amritsar, we will continue to focus on further route enhancements and introduce more value-added services and promotions.’

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia’s first hybrid airline, Malindo Air, will commence flights three times weekly from Kuala Lumpur to the Punjab capital of India, Amritsar, from Oct 25.

The 4,268km route or equivalent to a five-hour 20-minute flight will signify the airline’s furthest destination from its main hub in Kuala Lumpur, Malindo said in a statement yesterday.

In the same statement, Malindo Air chief executive officer Chandran Rama Muthy said the route would signify its furthest route yet from Kuala Lumpur, using its young fleet of Boeing 737-900ER aircraft.

“Malaysians and transiting visitors from neighbouring Singapore can now look forward to a smooth flight to Amritsar via Kuala Lumpur whether for business, leisure or religious purposes.

“Apart from Amritsar, we will continue to focus on further route enhancements and introduce more value-added services and promotions to strengthen our hybrid concept in Malaysia and the region,” he said.

Promotional fares to Amritsar for business class start from RM1,309 (one-way) while economy class fares start from RM759 (one-way), all inclusive of light refreshments and a meal, in-flight entertainment and free baggage allowance.

Bookings can be made online at or for smartphone devices at or via the Malindo Air App available for download on Google Play and App Store.

The flight will take off daily from KLIA2 at 9.15am and touch down at the Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport (ATQ) at 12.25pm. The return flight will depart from Amritsar at 1.15pm and arrive in KLIA2 at 9.35pm.

Recently, Malindo Air clinched the Airline of the Year (Passenger) award at the distinctive KLIA Awards 2014, in recognition of the airline’s achievements and exceptional performance in areas such as passenger movement, growth, sales, international recognition and service throughout 2014.
