Malindo airlines is become 155% larger in 19 months' time. Since Malindo airlines entry, some carries have been lowering air fares to get passengers and a report said that as of September, Malindo Airways had managed to secure a 8% share of capacity in the Malaysian domestic market, with both Malaysia Airways and AirAsia responding by increasing capacity to fight the competition. Malindo Air's target is to carry one million travellers by April 2014, and if the Indian destinations are added, this would be possible.
Although the group has Lion Air and Batik Air, Malindo will still offer international connectivity for the company. Batik Air was originally planned to be a long-haul carrier operating international destinations, but has moved on to become an FSC since that plan was canned.
