Mandala Airlines, the Indonesian low-cost carrier, has announced it will offer direct flights from Jakarta to Bangkok, Thailand. The new route will commence on August 10, 2012, with one round-trip flight per day.
In the press release, Mandala Airlines CEO Michael Coltman said: “To meet Indonesians’ desire for travel we will continue to seek opportunities to expand our network in Indonesia and the region and to share with our customers the benefits of connectivity to the rest of Asia.”
Bangkok will be the third international destination for Mandala Airlines, after Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Mandala Airlines recently formed a partnership with Tiger Airways and is expected to continue to increase its network throughout Southeast Asia.
