BATIK AIR EXPANDS FLIGHT FREQUENCY TO PENANG AND KUCHING

Kuala Lumpur, 11 June 2024 – Batik Air is pleased to announce the expansion of its flight frequency to two key domestic destinations, Penang and Kuching, effective 25 July 2024.

These strategic moves align with the growing anticipation surrounding the forthcoming 21st SUKMA Games 2024 which will be held in Sarawak on 17–24 August 2024. This will further highlight the airline’s dedication to supporting the much-awaited sporting event that bring communities together across Malaysia.

Penang is scheduled to gain a significant rise in flights frequencies departing from KLIA - from 21 to 33 weekly flights. Similarly, flights from KLIA to Kuching will see an additional 14, bringing the total to 28 weekly flights, further enhancing connectivity to these lively destinations.

Batik Air Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Chandran Rama Muthy said that the airline is dedicated to facilitating seamless travel experiences as part of its broader strategy to ensure passengers have the best possible journey.

"We understand the importance of reliable and convenient air travel, especially during major events like SUKMA, and we are committed to meeting and exceeding the expectations of our customers,” he said, adding that the anticipated event is expected to bring in 15,000 athletes and officials as well as 20,000 visitors nationwide.

In response to the heightened demand of travellers attending SUKMA, Batik Air will enhance its flight schedules, doubling the daily flights to Kuching to four daily flights and increasing those to Penang from three to five, starting on 25 July 2024.

Through this initiative, Batik Air is able to better fulfill the evolving demands of travellers and showcase their support for significant events that promote unity in the community.

“SUKMA provides a platform to unearth young athletes who would represent the country at the international level, and we take pride in playing a part in its success,” he added.

Batik Air remains steadfast in its mission to deliver exceptional service, prioritise passenger safety, and strengthen connectivity across its network.
