In December 2012 Mandala Airlines plans to open four new air routes between Padang (West Sumatra) and Singapore and Denpasar (Bali) with Surabaya (East Java) and Singapore.
Mandala’s commercial manager, Brata Rafly, told the press that the new routes would serve both the business and tourism sectors between the cities served.
West Sumatra governor Irwan Prayitno welcomed the new service between Padang and Singapore as he believed the flights would increase international travelers visiting Padang.
Mandala will also operate a new service in December between Bali and Surabaya and Bali and Singapore.
Mandala Airlines have been acquired in part by Singapore-based Tiger Airways.
Internationally, Mandala also flies Medan-Singapore, Jakarta-Bangkok and Jakarta-Kuala Lumpur.
