Malindo Air has teamed up with Qatar Airways to offer passengers seamless travel and greater connectivity when travelling between ASEAN and more than 100 destinations in Qatar Airways’ network. The enhanced connectivity is coupled with the convenience of a single reservation across both airlines’ networks – thanks to a new bilateral interline agreement that took effect on 8 July 2016.

The partnership allows Qatar Airways passengers to tap into Malindo Air’s growing short-haul regional network that currently serves 36 cities in 13 countries, including 13 major airports in Malaysia.

Malindo Air passengers travelling from cities such as Langkawi, Penang, Kota Kinabalu, Johor Bahru and Kuching can also easily book interline itineraries containing sectors that include one of Qatar Airways’ thrice-daily flights departing from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), thereby seamlessly connecting themselves to more than 100 onwards destinations within the Qatar Airways global network.

Malindo Air CEO Chandran Rama Muthy, said, “We are delighted to partner Qatar Airways, one of the world’s best airlines renowned for its aviation excellence and onboard hospitality. The agreement will further enhance Malindo Air’s reach beyond KLIA to all destinations served by Qatar Airways. Malindo Air is now able to bring our passengers further than ever before, with onward flights connecting passengers to more than 100 global destinations through Qatar Airways’ state-of-the-art hub, Hamad International Airport in Doha.”

Chandran also added, “This partnership will also give convenience for travellers from all corners of the globe to visit Malaysia and experience our diverse culture, explore our eco-tourism and enjoy the renowned Malaysian hospitality. Our extensive network coverage in Malaysia will enhance the choice of travel destinations to Visit Malaysia for customers in both the business and leisure segments.”

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “By partnering carriers such as Malindo Air, Qatar Airways is able to expand our regional footprint and continue to drive passenger growth on our Malaysia route and here in the ASEAN region. We take pride in being a global connector and now with the Malindo Air interline agreement, Malindo Air passengers will find it easier to travel to new leisure and business destinations in Qatar Airways’ expansive network whilst enjoying the high quality service we are known for. Many of Malindo Air’s regional destinations are now also within easy reach of Qatar Airways’ passengers, providing greater ease of travel for passengers travelling to and from cities where we previously do not serve.”
