KUALA LUMPUR: Malindo Air, CAPA 2016 Asia Pacific Regional Airline of the Year, has teamed up with All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest and only 5-Star airline, to offer passengers seamless travel and greater connectivity when travelling between ASEAN and over 200 routes on ANA’s network.
ANA is the fifth addition to Malindo Air’s interline partners, after Turkish Airline, Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways and Oman Air. The new bilateral interline agreement allows seamless travel with the convenience of a single reservation across both airlines’ network.
The partnership allows ANA passengers to tap into Malindo Air’s growing regional network out of Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Malindo Air currently serves over 46 cities across 16 countries, including 13 major airports in Malaysia.
Malindo Air CEO Chandran Rama Muthy said, “We are delighted to partner with ANA, one of the world’s leading airlines for its excellence in hospitality. It is indeed crucial for us, as a premium airline, to expand our route network and bring our passengers beyond KLIA with great airline partners. With ANA, our passengers will be connected to more than 200 global and domestic destinations through ANA’s hubs in Narita & Haneda.”
“Through our interline partnership, we are connecting travelers from a larger network to visit Malaysia and enjoy the renowned Malaysian hospitality through the diversified and warm culture, as well as our eco-tourism. At the same time, this will also increase the number of transit passengers at KLIA. Our extensive route network provides better options for passengers who travel for both the business and leisure segments,” Chandran added.
