Kuala Lumpur: For 2017, Malindo Air has set a target of doubling its passenger traffic from 5.6 million in 2016 to 10 million.

“We are planning to double our flight frequency to Jakarta and Bali from twice a day to four times daily, and we will also increase our flights to Medan from once a day to twice a day,” Chief Executive Officer Chandran Rama Muthy.

He was speaking to reporters after the launch of the Malindo KL Sentral ticketing office and check-in counter in Kuala Lumpur recently.

To achieve the target, the airline would take delivery of 10 new aircraft this year, he added. The additional aircraft would enable the airline to increase its flight frequency to several regional destinations.

“With the new ticketing office and check-in service, customers will be able to check-in at Malindo Air’s counter at the KLIA Ekspres Departure Hall,” Deputy Transport Minister Aziz Kaprawi said.

Passengers can check-in their luggage three hours before their flight at the KL Sentral office.
