#Malindo Air - Not Just Low Cost | Inaugural Flight

No, this is not me. I do wish though.

I was invited to be part of #Malindo Air inaugural flight to Kota Kinabalu last week where Deputy Minister of Transport Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri officially launched the new hybrid carrier, promising us travelers not just a low cost carrier but superior in products and services.

#MalindoAir Boeing 737-900ER flight to Sabah is said to help improve connectivity and help boost Sabah tourism thus opening up job opportunities, this will be achieved by converting Kota Kinabalu to be the second hub for travelers flying in from Indonesia, Korea, Japan and China.

Waiting for check-in.

Among those invited to experience #Malindo Air inaugural flight were fellow medias, bloggers and travel agents to witness its first scheduled flight to East Malaysia after months of suspense.

#Malindo Air CEO, Mr Chandran Rama Muthy said that this is the first hybrid carrier in Malaysia offering both Business and Economy Classes to it's customers, with Business Class travelers benefitting baggage allowances of 30kg and 15kg for Economy Class. Not to mention other advantages traveller will be enjoying such as leg room, In-Flight Entertainment (IFE), WiFi and others.

Passengers were colourfully welcomed to board the first flight, each one was given a small token of appreciation from the organizer. 

This is a 180 seater Boeing, holding 12 seater for business class and 168 for economy class.

In-Flight Entertainment for everyone, something for travelers to look forward to. 

There is NO HOT seats in #Malindo Air, ALL seats are HOT. 

No more worries for tall travelers, sufficient leg room with seat pitch of 45 inches for Business Class and 32 inches seat pitch for Economy Class. 

Personal In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) with movie-on-demand readily available, it also comes with USB hub (where one can simply charge their mobile devices) and a standard single point earphone/headphone jack. Travelers can either use own earphone/headphone or purchase one on-board at RM5.00.
To top it all, the flight comes with light refreshment.

Sandwich set and bottled water served during our flight to Kota Kinabalu.

We were welcomed with water-canon as our flight approaches the gate.

We were given a vinusak and greeted by beautiful Sumazau dance.

Sabah hospitality at best.

Heading for the press-conference.
