26 October 2015

Malaysia’s first hybrid airline becomes the sole airline to offer direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and the Sikh holy city of Amritsar. Malindo Air’s three times weekly flights will commence from Oct 25.

Malindo Air chief operating officer Chandran Rama Muthy said the route marks the airline’s furthest route yet from Kuala Lumpur using their fleet of Boeing 737-900ER aircraft.

“Malaysians and transiting visitors from neighbouring Singapore can now look forward to a smooth flight to Amritsar via Kuala Lumpur whether for business, leisure or religious purposes,” he said.

The city of Amritsar in Punjab, India, offers a humbling eye-opening experience for tourists and Sikh pilgrims. The legendary Harmandir Sahib, also known as the Golden Temple, is a must-visit for spiritual healing and sight-seeing.

The departing flight will take off daily from KLIA2 at 9.15am and touch down at the Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport (ATQ) at 12.25pm. The return flight will depart from Amritsar at 1.15pm and arrive in KLIA2 at 9.35pm.

Bookings can be made online at or via the Malindo Air App available for download on Google Play and App Store.
