Malindo Air to move jet operations to KLIA from klia2


Malindo Air CEO Chandran Rama Muthy


KUALA LUMPUR: Malindo Air will move its jet operations from klia2 terminal to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) main terminal from March 15.

It said on Friday the shift was to provide better service to its customers as it seeks to position itself for sustainable, long-term growth. 

Malindo said all its flights to and from Kuala Lumpur from March 15 would depart from and arrive at KLIA Main Terminal. 

“The ATR72-600 turbo-prop operations from Lapangan Terbang Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah, Subang (LTSAAS – Subang Skypark) will not be affected by this relocation,” it pointed out. 

Malindo Air CEO Chandran Rama Muthy said the relocation to KLIA Main would contribute to the growth of the nation’s aviation and tourism industries, and boost the economic growth of the country further.  

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) said this move was to assist airlines in increasing their connectivity into KUL Hub and enhance the seamless inter and intra transfers at both KLIA Main and klia2 terminals.

MAHB managing director Datuk Badlisham Ghazali said:  “As Malindo Air evolves its business model from a hybrid to a full service airline, there are many premium services demanded by its business class passengers which are more available at KLIA Main. 

“They also require a shorter turnaround time for the transfers in their cooperative engagement with the foreign carriers operating out of KLIA Main.”
