India, China and Hong Kong Flights to take place soon with Malindo Airlines. The newly-established start-up partnership between Malaysia and Indonesia Malindo Airlines, which celebrated its new flights between Kuching and Kuala Lumpur (KL) this month, will start operations internationally with flights from India (New Delhi) over the next coming months. It is also expected that malindo will start operations from Sarawak to Sabah and to Hong Kong and China at the beginning of next year.
The primary idea at the moment is to make Malaysia a transit hub for travellers that travel in via Malindo and Lion Airlines network. Its next domestic route out of Kuala Lumpur is Miri, which will begin very shortly , followed by Bintulu and Sibu later this year. Lion Airlines transported almost 32 million travellers in 2012 and expects to further transport 37 million this year. India, China and Hong Kong are huge markets for any airline to tap into. The population alone of these two countries proves that is huge demand for travel.
