Malaysia’s Malindo Air has added three new destinations over the last month, expanding its international network to 25 cities in 13 countries. At least five new destinations are likely in 4th quarter of 2016, including Brisbane, Chiang Mai, Phuket and up to two in China.
Malindo is the only airline of Indonesia's Lion Group with a significant international network and is starting to emerge as a major sixth freedom competitor within the Asia Pacific region. Malindo’s rapid international expansion is somewhat risky but strategic and essential as the Lion Group seeks a bigger role outside its domestic roots.
This is Part 2 in a series of analysis reports on Malindo. The first part analysed Malindo’s plans for fleet expansion. This part reviews Malindo’s network expansion and the final part will examine the airline's partnership strategy and overall outlook.
