Malindo Air rebranded as Batik Air

Malindo Air, a Malaysian-based regional airline, has been officially rebranded as Batik Air.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) has granted a new Air Operators Certificate (AOC) to Malindo Airways Sdn Bhd to do business as Batik Air (dba Batik Air).

The rebranding exercise is in line with the Lion Group’s goal to establish a common identity for the full service airlines within the group. With this approval in place, Batik Air now will be able to conduct improved business for seamless transfers, leveraging Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) as a transit hub for the Lion Group of Airlines.

“With the rebranding exercise and the reopening of the borders taking place in the region, we are very excited for the opportunities presented to us for the potential growth of our airline and with the new brand, we will be able to offer fresh and new services,” said Capt. Mushafiz Bin Mustafa Bakri, CEO, Batik Air.

The exercise will be conducted in phases and Batik Air will communicate to its passengers and partners progressively during the rollout.

With the reopening of borders and the gradual improvement in the demand for travel, Batik Air will be adding a number of B737 aircraft to its existing fleet to offer services to the markets operated prior to the outbreak of the pandemic.
