The much awaited hybrid carrier Malindo Air has finally open up its wings to passengers, but those who are planning to fly to exotic destinations via Malindo Air will have to wait a lot longer because for the time being, only flights to and from Kuala Lumpur, Kuching, and Kota Kinabalu are available to flyers.
For those of you who might not know, Malindo Air is a Malaysian based airline resulted from a joint venture between Malaysia's National Aerospace and Defence Industries (NADI) and Lion Air of Indonesia. Malindo Air also provides Business Class seats for those who prefer a little more luxurious seats (note : more space for leg room basically), and these Business Class seats come at a cheaper price if compared to non low-cost airlines. And if you are boarding on Malindo Air, you will be checking in from the main KLIA terminal building and not LCCT.
A stark comparison between AirAsia and Malindo Air is that this airline is a "hybrid" carrier. This basically means that although they are a low cost carrier, they do provide services like in flight entertainment (aka TV), light snacks, and free baggage allowance of 15 kg and 30 kg, and Business Class seats at a lower price. Compare to AirAsia where you have to purchase for quite literally everything from food to pillow, these services could be heavenly to flyers, but first let's see the prices offered by Malindo Air because we give them the thumbs up :
Example 1 : Return Flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu
First up, we have to say that looking for the cheapest flight price is quite a hassle because they don't provide a weekly or a monthly schedule to make it easier for future passengers to surf through the dates and prices offered. But nevertheless, in the month of March, we noticed that you can get the promotional price of RM68.00 (one way) quite easily. The next tier RM108.00 for a one way flight to Kota Kinabalu (Save : RM40.00).
Similarly, you can also get RM68.00 for your flight back to Kuala Lumpur, so if you're fortunate to get the cheapest flight price on your journey to Kota Kinabalu, your return trip to Kota Kinabalu will only cost you RM136.00.
Example 2 : Return Flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching
We noticed that Malindo Air don't fly to Kuching every day (No flights on 23-24 March). On the days that they do fly, the promotional price of RM38.00 can be quite tricky to find if you're planning a trip in March. But the RM38.00 one way ticket can be found quite easily in the month of April! The next tier is at RM78.00 (save : RM40.00)
Similarly, you can return back to Kuala Lumpur at RM38.00 too, which means that your total cost for your trip to Kuching could be as low as RM76.00.
