Malindo to ply Ipoh-Singapore route
Malaysia's hybrid airline Malindo Air today announced it would commence Ipoh-Singapore-Ipoh daily services from July 14, 2015, deploying its first Boeing aircraft, B737NG.
The daily service will depart from Changi Airport (Terminal 3) at 10.00 and arrive at Sultan Azlan Shah Airport, Ipoh at 11.25. From Sultan Azlan Shah Airport, the flight will depart at 12.10 and arrive at Changi Airport (Terminal 3) at 13.30.
The new Ipoh-Singapore sector is a part of the airline’s route expansion and enhancement plan with the delivery of two B737NG aircraft, which will boost the fleet size to a total of 21, comprising 10 Boeing aircraft and 11 ATR 72-600. Six more B737NG jets are expected to be delivered by December 2015.
Malindo Air CEO, Chandran Rama Muthy, said: “The airline is fast expanding with its plan to connect to more domestic and international cities. We would be adding new aircraft to the fleet, where two out of eight aircraft orders have arrived and we are immediately adding frequencies and deploying them to new regional routes.”
Ticket sales are now open, with promo fares from RM128 (US$34) one-way inclusive of 20kg baggage allowance, in-flight entertainment and light refreshments.
Just last month, Tigerair too, inaugurated its Singapore-Ipoh route with four-weekly services.
