Malindo Air is certainly on a roll this year, announcing a handful of new routes interesting enough to pique avid Malaysian travellers’ interest. Ours, including!
Back in 2015, word on the street was that Malindo Air was proposing a Kuala Lumpur – Ho Chi Minh service which was supposed to have started sometime in mid December 2015. Malindo Air also teased the new and exciting destination via their official Facebook page last month:
We know for sure now that it’s definitely happening albeit a little later than expected because Malindo Air has announced that all bookings are now open for their Kuala Lumpur – Ho Chi Minh – Kuala Lumpur route!
The daily services to Ho Chi Minh will start on 29th January 2016. Malindo Air’s Vietnam route will mark the airline’s 10th country in its expanding international network.
Promotional fares for the new route are as follows:
- Kuala Lumpur – Ho Chi Minh starts from RM129 for Economy Class and RM399 for Business Class one-way all inclusive
- The promotional fares include perks such as free baggage allowance, in-flight entertainment, a meal and light refreshments.
As seen in the screenshot above, the current economy class fare will set you back about RM600.
The narrow-body Boeing 737-800 aircraft with a seat capacity of 162, with 12 Business Class and 150 Economy Class seats, will be deployed on the new route. The flight time between Kuala Lumpur – Ho Chi Minh city will take 1 hour and 55 minutes.
For bookings, visit Malindo Air’s website, use Malindo Air’s mobile site, or download the Malindo Air App on Google Play and App Store. To enquire, write in to Customer Care Centre at [email protected] or call +603-7841 5388 from 7am to 11pm daily.
