Mandala Airlines’ Surabaya to Jakarta

Mandala Airlines’ staff, including the flight crew members Muhammad Junaidi, Ditto Arya and Diah Proborini, posed for a series of commemorative pictures in anticipation of the new services from Surabaya.

  • Mandala Airlines, the Indonesian low-cost carrier,which resumed its services last April, continues its expansion in the country’s second-largest city Surabaya (SUB) with three new routes, in addition to the Denpasar flights launched earlier in December. Last week the carrier commenced services to Jakarta (CGK), Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and Singapore (SIN) and now offers seven weekly frequencies on each route facing substantial competition from numerous airlines already operating in those markets.
