MALINDO Air has inaugurated its third entry point into Australia with the inaugural Melbourne to Bali service departing this morning on a Boeing 737-800.
The airline is the third to serve the route and will operate seven times per week, adding a combined 118,260 seats flying both ways annually.
Melbourne Airport chief of aviation Simon Gandy said the addition created more choice and frequency for travellers flying to and from Indonesia.
“The full service carrier also opens up connections to Indonesia and beyond, with opportunities for Victorians to explore other Indonesian leisure destinations, such as the world’s largest Buddhist temple in Yogyakarta, Central Java,” he said.
The flight continues to Kuala Lumpur, with connections to South East Asian regions and the Indian sub-continent available.
Malindo Air’s daily service will arrive at 4:40am & depart at 7am.
The carrier entered the Australian market with Boeing 737 aircraft to Perth in 2015 (TD 19 Nov 15) and last year added a Kuala Lumpur-Bali-Brisbane return service (TD 03 Apr 17).
