Sydney Airport has welcomed Malindo Air to its international network, introducing a new Sydney to Kuala Lumpur via Denpasar route, enhancing choice and flexibility for customers and boosting tourism.
The new daily service bolsters Sydney Airport’s expansive Asian network of over 30 destinations, providing travellers with the ability to combine business and leisure across two of the most popular regional hubs.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Malindo Air to Sydney Airport, further growing our Asian network and providing customers with more options when travelling to and from Asia,” Sydney Airport CEO Geoff Culbert said.
