Kuala Lumpur, 21 June 2024 – Batik Air announces the temporary suspension of its services to and from Auckland, New Zealand via Perth, Australia, effective 19 July 2024.

Batik Air reaffirms its continuous commitment to the New Zealand market, recognising its significance as an excellent fit within its network. With its vibrant tourism sector, robust economy, and strong cultural ties to the Asia Pacific countries, New Zealand represents a key market for Batik Air.

Batik Air Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Chandran Rama Muthy, stated that the airline regrets any inconvenience caused and remains confident that these strategic adjustments will strengthen its operational framework.

“The forthcoming replacement with a direct service will strengthen the connectivity and opportunities for travellers across the Batik Air network and enhance travel experience of our passengers,” he said, adding that the revised plan offers better connectivity to our markets stretching from the Middle East, Central Asia and the other countries in the Asia Pacific.

He emphasized that the airline will continue to work with the tourism authorities to support travel and tourism in the high growth Asia Pacific markets.
