So another Indonesian airline wanting to make their mark here?

Similarly for air Asia in Indonesia. Open market allow more competition, more choice for consumers.

Very good - more competition is always good for the consumer, provided that it is sustainable and not wasteful.

Cheap cheap cheap and cheaper....here we go:

 

  • Competition in the international market has been intensifying, pressuring yields.
  • Five of the six airlines based in Malaysia were unprofitable in 2018 and the outlook for 2019 is not any rosier.

China is Malaysia’s third largest international market based on seat capacity. Indonesia and Singapore are the two largest markets based on seat capacity (and are also the largest based on visitor numbers).

AirAsia/AirAsia X, Malaysia Airlines and Malindo now serve all of Malaysia’s top 10 international markets. Malaysia has become an extremely competitive market.

 

 

Of the six Malaysia-based airlines, only one was profitable in 2018: Malaysia AirAsia, which reported a 54% drop in pretax profit.

The outlook for 2019 is again relatively gloomy. Malindo is resuming expansion, which could impact AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines as yields on some routes are again pressured.

KUALA LUMPUR: Garuda Indonesia's subsidiary Citilink Indonesia says it has no plan yet to establish a business entity in Malaysia.

Dismissing reports linking it with such plans as “misleading”, Citilink however said it was continuously growing and expanding its business in Indonesia and other regional countries.

“In respond to the news regarding Citilink Indonesia establishing an entity in Malaysia through partnership with local Malaysian General Sales Agent (GSA), the management would like to deny the misleading information.

“As a member of Indonesian Flag Carrier Garuda Indonesia, Citilink Indonesia has no plan yet to establish a business entity in Malaysia, whether in a short or long term. Hereby, Citilink Indonesia strongly denies the publication of such misleading information,” it said today.
