Despite China, being recorded as the third largest tourist generating market to Malaysia in 2014 with 1.6 million visitors after Singapore (13.9 million) and Indonesia (2.8 million), with an estimated population of 1.39 billion people in 2014, there is no doubt a huge tourism market available in China,” said Chandran Rama Muthy, CEO of Malindo Air.

We hope to keep that momentum going. Our presence in the China market through effective advertising and promotional campaigns as well as other trade engagements will certainly help hike up tourist arrivals into Malaysia for the coming year. Moreover, our connectivity will spur economic development by encouraging new investment and business developments in both countries due to our seamless connectivity.”
