Malindo Air, the Lion Air-backed LCC operating in Malaysia, has launched two new domestic routes last week from Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Langkawi (LGK) and Penang (PEN). Both routes will be served daily using the airline’s 737-900s with frequency increasing in the coming months. Both routes are already very well served by AirAsia (70 weekly flights to Langkawi, and 63 to Penang) and Malaysia Airlines (49 weekly flights to Langkawi and 68 to Penang). Since launching flights from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in late March, Malindo Air has already dropped its route to Tawau. It also started domestic flights in August from Kuala Lumpur’s old airport at Subang using ATR 72s. As of now, the airline operates seven routes from KLIA, and six routes from Subang. All of these are domestic with the exception of the carrier’s recently launched Dhaka service from KLIA.
