Commercial Director of PT Mandala Airlines Brata Rafly said since officially opened back in April 2012, bringing it increasingly aggressive fleet, and until now already operates six Airbus 320. "At the end of this week will come again one A320 unit that we had bought for U.S. $ 50 million to U.S. $ 80 million, so that by the end of the year we are targeting will have 15 A320 aircraft which we operate," said Brata to Bisnis.com , Wednesday (16 / 1/2013).

He explained that the A320 aircraft which will arrive this weekend to serve the planned new routes directly opened as the plane came. The new route is the Pekanbaru-Jakarta-Singapore and Pekanbaru-Medan is planned to open at the Valentine's Days (Valentines Day), February 14, 2013. "We will move more aggressively to open more markets in Indonesia and connect with routes Tiger Airways, a sister company Mandala Airlines today, "said Brata.

Despite increasingly aggressive open market in Indonesia, Brata reluctant to say that it would compete with low-cost airlines or low cost carriers (LCC) banks in Indonesia such as Indonesia Air Asia and Lion Air.
"We each have their own market, clearly we offer exciting destinations to reach the community to up to 50 destinations in 14 countries of the world along with Tiger Airways, "he said.

Airline owned by the Saratoga Group and Tiger Airlines is now flying the 15 destinations of Indonesia to cities in the country and to three cities in three countries namely Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Bangkok using Mandala Airlines flight. If using Tiger Airways flight, can reach 50 destinations in 14 countries worldwide. "We plan to open flights to Perth Australia from Jakarta in April 2013, of course, by using our new aircraft, the entire aircraft is the A320," he said.

The choice for all A320 fleet Mandala Airlines, according Brata, because this type of aircraft is considered most appropriate for LCC airlines as fuel costs lebh mrahketimbang other brands with the same capacity ie 180 passengers. In two years, he added, the total fleet will be operated Mandala will be 25 new aircraft. Previously, Mandala Airlines has also been entered into partnership with Singapore-based airline Tiger Airways (shareholders), and Singapore Changi Airport Group to launch tigerconnect.

Hmmm, I can't really see that being a viable route?

I know for a fact I wouldn't fancy sitting in an A320 from Perth to the Manila, never mind passing through Darwin...

That's got to be at least 8 hours plus stuck in that narrow body. Is the demand really even there for Darwin? I guess we will wait and see...

Would MNL - SYD or MEL - PER work better using A330 or similar?

Scoot Airlines (SINGAPORE) have a possibility of flying to Perth. They've already started a service to Sydney and Coolangatta and are closely eyeing Melbourne and Perth.

Scoot certainly have a real opportunity in Perth. I read a while back that Tiger Airways (TR) services are interlining on the PER-SIN route. Also, Singapore Airlines (SQ) operate four daily services. It could be viable to use one of those daily services as a Scoot (TZ) service. Who knows? We might have to wait and see! Melbourne is about to receive a fourth daily service from SQ (to note). There is also a viable option that they may bring their newly-ordered 787s into play?

Interesting to note, Melbourne and Perth are available on the Booking Menu on their website. Although they have done that, there is no available service. Any reason for this?

Yeah, just checked their one of their websites. They say one of their destinations is Perth, but say "(no service as yet)". I think they might start a service to Melbourne before Perth, but Perth wouldn't be far behind. It's likely they'll start a service sometime next year. Their aircraft look nice too! :lol: Anyway, they are a parent company of Singapore Airlines, so they might just keep the 4 times daily service without changing it. We'll just wait and see what happens.
