This series is written by Katie about her trip to AAMAS 2016 in Singapore, Singapore.
I had about 2.5 hours from when my Malaysia Airlines flight landed to when my Malindo Air flight departed. This was a bit stressful because I had to clear customs and immigration into Malaysia, reclaim my baggage, check-in to my Malindo Air flight, check my baggage, exit Malaysia, and then finally be ready to board my Malindo Air flight to Singapore. Luckily, everything went smoothly!
However, this was a situation in which I was very thankful that I had booked a ticket on Malindo Air, which departs from KLIA1. Most other budget airlines depart from KLIA2, which would have required me to take either the train or a bus between terminals (the terminals are actually more like separate airports).

When I reached the gate, people were queuing for security. I walked around for a while before clearing security and then boarding the plane.

The cabin on the Malindo Air plane was sleek and new-looking. I was very impressed to find in-seat entertainment in each seat back.

The flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore was just 60 minutes from push-back to arrival. However, in this time each passenger was provided a complementary corn muffin and cup of water.

I’d 100% fly Malindo Air again – the aircraft was nice, the flight attendants were nice enough, and the seats were pretty comfortable.
