Starting today, Malindo Air will resume domestic flights from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang. The airline will be operating a single daily flight to all domestic destinations, including Sabah and Sarawak.
To kickstart this effort, Malindo Air is also offering flight tickets at a special price via its Ready To Get Back promotion. The promotion lets you book from now until 30 April 2020, with travel period starting from 27 April 2020 onwards.
The cost of one-way flights from KLIA will start at RM159, RM299, and RM399 (economy class) for Penang, Kuching, and Kota Kinabalu, respectively. Alternatively, you can opt to fly business class at a promotional price starting from RM399 for Penang, RM499 for Kuching, and RM699 for Kota Kinabalu.
Flights from Subang, on the other hand, will focus on routes within Peninsular Malaysia, namely Penang, Alor Setar, Johor Bahru, Langkawi, Kuala Terengganu, and Kota Bahru. The price of one-way flights (economy class) to these destinations will begin from RM199. Additionally, those who wish to get return tickets as well can get them starting from RM397.
Malindo Air further reminded that the Ready To Get Back promotion is subject to seat availability, and that requests for flight changes must be done at least 4 hours before the departure time. The promotion is also not applicable to standby passengers. In other words, you will not be allowed to purchase tickets at the last moment to take up empty seats.
“The flights are deployed to meet the demands and ease the journey back home by our fellow Malaysians, especially students who have been stranded in campuses since the MCO began. Passengers are required to have face masks with them, failing which they have to purchase one before being allowed boarding,” said the airline in a statement.
Malindo Air – along with Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and AirAsia – had previously grounded its commercial flights due to the drop in travel demand because of the Covid-19 pandemic and cross-border travel restrictions. The Transport Ministry subsequently requested for the airlines to reconsider their decisions, prompting MAS to resume flights to Sabah and Sarawak. AirAsia followed soon after, announcing that it will resume domestic flights starting from 29 April 2020.
That said, all international flights are still suspended as per the restrictions of the movement control order (MCO).
