- Malindo Air has added two new international routes between Malaysia and Thailand. On 11 September it began daily flights on the 608-kilometre route from Kuala Lumpur Subang (SZB) to Krabi (KBV) in Thailand. The following day four times weekly flights on the 332-kilometre routes from Penang (PEN) to Krabi were added. Both routes will be operated by the airline’s ATR 72-600s. The only competition on either route is on the Penang-Krabi route which is already served thrice-weekly by firefly, Malaysia Airlines’ regional subsidiary. Malindo Air, the joint venture airline involving Indonesia’s Lion Air, only launched service in March 2013, but is already operating over 90 flights per day on a network of some 23 routes, using a mix of 737-900ERs and ATR 72-600s.
