Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Wee Ka Siong officiated the rebranding exercise and the introduction of the Boeing 737-8 as a part of the airline’s fleet, in a ceremony at a hotel here. Dr. Wee congratulated Batik Air for its rebranding and commitment to provide competitive services within Malaysia and the Asia-Pacific region as a young and expanding airline.
He further stated that Batik Air would be the first airline in Malaysia to fly the Boeing 737-8, marking a significant development in Malaysian aviation. Additionally, he urged Malaysia’s airline operators to maintain adherence and to uphold the legal requirements set forth by CAAM, MAVCOM, and ICAO. The strictest safety standards must always be upheld, and passengers and crew must come first. This is particularly important because Malaysia will be attending the ICAO’s 41st Triennial Assembly in September 2022 to seek for re-election to the ICAO Council Part III for the years 2022–2025.
Also present was CAAM’s Chief Executive Officer Datuk Captain Chester Voo, Malaysian Aviation Commision (Mavcom) Executive Chairman Datuk Seri Saripuddin Haji Kasim, Lion Air Group founder Pak Rusdi Kirana, Lion Air Group Strategic Director Datuk Chandran Rama Murthy and Boeing Sales and Marketing Asia Region Senior Vice-President John Bruns.
