At the same time, Malindo Air will provide KLIA as a hub for Saudi tourists to visit Malaysia and the far-east.”
Chandran also said that with the recent extension of the simplified visa application process for short stays to Chinese nationals by Malaysia, more Chinese tourists are expected this year to Malaysia. “Chinese travellers constituted the largest source of tourists in 2015, whereas the first eight months of 2016 saw 1.7 million tourists from China visiting Malaysia. This latest travelling option that Malindo Air provides will hopefully spur even more visitors from China to Malaysia as their preferred destination.”
