Newcomer to Australian airspace Malindo Air is boosting its flights between Perth and Kuala Lumpur just two weeks after launching the route on November 19.
Using a Boeing 737-900 aircraft fitted with business class and economy, Malindo Air will offer an extra flight out of Perth on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, adding to its already-daily OD152/OD151 service between the two cities.
The new OD156 flight provides a morning departure of 7am to reach Kuala Lumpur at 12:55pm, while the OD155 return service is wheels-up at 11:15pm for a 5am arrival into Australia’s mining capital.
Business class provides 12 leather reclining seats in a 2-2 configuration across three rows…
… complete with multi-country AC and USB charging ports for each passenger, an 11.1-inch touchscreen inflight entertainment system…
… complimentary food and beverage and one hour of inflight Internet access with additional usage available for an extra charge.
Passengers at the pointy end also enjoy access to the Malindo Executive Lounge in Kuala Lumpur before their flight home, as do Malindo Miles Platinum members and Malindo Corporate Gold customers stuck in economy.
From Kuala Lumpur Malindo Air offers connections to a number of destinations across Malaysia and to a variety of international cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Singapore and Bangkok, joined by Colombo from December 18 2015.
Qantas partner and Oneworld member Malaysia Airlines also flies non-stop between Perth and Kuala Lumpur, as does low-cost airline AirAsia X.
