Malindo Air announced it will now fly to Chiang Mai, Thailand, daily.
This will be the second Thai destination after Bangkok, with flights from Kuala Lumpur to Phuket also in the works for a Nov 10 launch date.
The airline said it was offering travellers RM199 for economy class and RM299 for business class one-way, all-inclusive for its maiden flight to the northern Thai city.
Malindo Air Flight OD530 will depart every day from KLIA at 10.35am and arrive in Chiang Mai International Airport at 12.20pm local time.
The return flight will depart Chiang Mai at 1.40pm and arrive in KLIA at 5.25pm.
“Travellers from Malaysia will now be able to access this new destination in less than three hours with the low fares,” said Malindo Air chief executive officer Chandran Rama Muthy.
“This will certainly bring mutual benefit to both countries. We are confident our new frequency and attractive fares will stimulate more inbound and outbound travel between both countries,” Chandran said in a statement.
