The flights will operate from three regions in Indonesia: western, central, and eastern. Starting from May 12, 2023, the flights will transit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Starting from June 23, 2023, there will be only one transit in Kuala Lumpur, and all flights from Kuala Lumpur will be operated by Batik Air Malaysia.
Communications Strategic of Batik Air, Danang Mandala Prihantoro, said the flights would make it easier for Indonesians to access the Maldives without needing to look for complicated flight routes or waste time transiting in remote places.
The schedule flexibility will also benefit travelers, allowing them to choose more transit times and better plan their trips.
In addition to providing convenience to travelers, these flights can improve relations between Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Maldives and open up opportunities for collaboration in various fields such as tourism and business.
Tourists can also enjoy the beauty of Kuala Lumpur and explore interesting places before continuing their journey to the Maldives.
Batik Air will operate Boeing 737 aircraft for these flights.
