Malindo Air has spread its wings to Land Of The Rising Sun with the touch down of flight OD0888 in Sapporo, Japan on 23rd March 2019. The flight landed at New Chitose International Airport on time at 6:20pm after leaving Kuala Lumpur at 7:40am, with a short stopover in Taipei, Taiwan.
Passengers on the return flight OD0889 from Sapporo to Kuala Lumpur witnessed a ribbon cutting ceremony at the departure gate before boarding. The new service is the airline’s first to Japan, the 17th country in their network. Sapporo enjoys cool weather throughout the year, with unspoiled nature and attractions such as volcanoes and natural hot springs. It’s popular during the winter as a skiing destination and in spring for the cherry blossoms. Summer is never too hot and the changing colours of autumn are also a draw for visitors.
….. Japan has always been close to Malaysia, as we share strong ties through the economy trade, education, as well as food and cultural exchange. Chandran Rama Muthy, CEO of Malindo Air
…. We would also like to bring in more international traffic to Malaysia, in support of boosting local tourism and airport arrivals. Moreover, we will continue to explore flying into other cities in Japan.
There are 3 weekly flights to and from Kuala Lumpur. Booking is now available at a promotional one-way fare of MYR799 for Economy Class and MYR1,999 for Business Class. Place your booking on the Malindo Air website, ticketing offices, customer care centre or your preferred travel agent.
