Malindo Air launches campaign to get ready for 2019, explores automation using tech

To celebrate its “gradual improvement” on its flights on-time performance (OTP), Malindo air has kicked-off a new promotion campaign called “Get Ready for 2019”. According to the airline, their Boeing aircraft operations have recorded the highest percentage of the year in the month of September, at 88%. On the other hand, the airline’s ATR aircraft operations have also recorded 91% OTP in September 2018.This has given the airline the courage to “invite everyone to come onboard and experience [its] services”.

Chandran Rama Muthy, CEO of Malindo Air said this is a result of “excellent planning and great team work”. He explained that apart from the effort to keep up with the performance at the ground level, the airline will also take a step forward to strengthen on preventive maintenance, to ensure the aircraft are ready according to schedule, as well as improving flight block time to allow sufficient turnaround time for connecting passengers.

“In the long run, we are exploring automation using technology to create more value and improve customer’s experience at every possible touch point - from the moment when passengers purchase their tickets till they complete their trip with us,” he added. According to Muthy, the “progressive improvement” has boosted the team’s confidence and motivates the people to embrace the up-coming year end holiday peak, as well as a brand new year ahead.

Our flight OTP will also directly affect how well we synchronize with our code-share partners, namely Turkish Airline and Batik Air, as well as our interline partners,” he continues.
