Malindo Air

Full Service Carrier
Ceased Operations on 27-Apr-2022
Part of Lion Group
Country/Territory: Malaysia


Malindo Air was a full service carrier formed as a joint venture between Malaysia's National Aerospace and Defence Industries (NADI) and Lion Air. The carrier launched in mid Mar-2013 starting with domestic services and expanded to an international network. Malindo Air had been preparing for a rebranding exercise which should improve awareness of its model and full service product offering. The airline had been planning to adopt the Batik Malaysia brand but has faced regulatory delays. Lion Group aimed to use Malindo as its main international airline, transferring passengers from throughout Indonesia onto Malindo's network via Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

On 27-Apr-2022, Malindo Air announced plans to officially rebrand as Batik Air from 28-Apr-2022 following a new air operators certificate granted by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia. The exercise will be conducted in phases and Batik Air will communicate to its passengers and partners progressively during the rollout.
