Malindo Air, CAPA 2016 Asia Pacific Regional Airline of the Year, announced that all booking are now open for its two new daily services from Kuala Lumpur to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, from 1 August 2017, and its code share flight from Kuala Lumpur to Chennai, India, which will commence effective 24 July 2017, available in both Business Class & Economy Class seats.
Chandran Rama Muthy, CEO of Malindo Air said “We are thrilled to announce these two new routes to our network. Both Phnom Penh and Chennai are rich in culture and both destinations have active travelers for trade and leisure. The addition of these routes supports our continuous effort in making KLIA a transit hub, by connecting passengers to visit Malaysia.”

Passengers from India, for example, can fly to Kuala Lumpur and further their journey to Indonesia, Australia or even Hong Kong or Taiwan. Our network grows rapidly, especially with our progressive code share strategies, which aim to provide better connectivity in the region,” added Chandran.
