Malindo Air have commenced operations on a new route connecting Subang Skypark International Airport in Selangor, Malaysia, with Silangit International Airport in North Tapanuli, North Sumatra. The Malaysian airline began its series of new flights on 17th August 2018, to coincide with Indonesia’s Independence Day. The airline’s latest route will allow travellers to visit one of the archipelago’s greatest natural wonders: Lake Toba; and brings Malindo’s total of Indonesian destinations to three.
“We’re very happy to introduce our third destination city from Subang [Skypark airport in Selangor] to Indonesia, after Batam and Pekanbaru,” said Malindo Air CEO Chandran Rama Muthy, in a recent report by the Jakarta Post. “This marks our continuous effort to expand our route network to North Sumatra as part of our cooperation with Indonesia’s Tourism Ministry to promote ecotourism,” he continued.
Lake Toba is the world’s largest volcanic lake, covering an area of 1,145 square km and reaching depths of 450 metres in places. The surrounding landscapes are home to ancient traditions and form the setting for unique cultural heritage, making the Toba region of North Sumatra a popular and rewarding destination for travellers.
The latest flights from Malindo Air will provide international holidaymakers with greater choice and easier access than ever before, to one of Indonesia’s stellar locations. Malindo will also offer great value for those making the trip from Subang to Silangit, with free baggage of up to 15 kilogrammes.
