Malindo Air takes off for Taipei in Taiwan

  • Malindo Air has become the fifth airline to operate daily flights between Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and Taipei Taoyuan (TPE). On 10 September the carrier, which now markets itself as a full-service carrier, began operating on the 3,243-kilometre route using its 180-seat 737-900s, which includes 12 seats in business class. It will go up against double-daily flights offered by AirAsia X and daily services from China Airlines, EVA Air and Malaysia Airlines. This brings to 39 the number of airports currently served by Malindo Air across 14 countries. Taiwan is a new market for the carrier. Chandran Rama Muthy, CEO of Malindo Air, said: “The launch of Malindo Air’s new service from KLIA to Taipei reinforces the continued growth of the Malaysian aviation industry, and cements Malaysia as an increasingly attractive investment in the region. This new daily service to Taipei will continue opening Malaysia up to the world, making it easier for passengers to travel not just to Malaysia but also beyond on Malindo Air, to Indonesia, Singapore, the Indian sub-continent and Australia. We are delighted to be able to provide connectivity to our passengers further than ever before.”
