Indonesian low-cost carrier Mandala Airlines plans to launch four new routes, starting 1 December.

Using Airbus A320 aircraft, the carrier will operate daily Jakarta-Padang, Padang-Singapore, Singapore-Denpasar and Denpasar-Surabaya services, the airline said in statement.

Schedules in Innovata show that Mandala will be the only operator on the Singapore to Padang route.

It will compete with carriers such as Garuda Indonesia on the Singapore-Denpasar, Denpasar-Surabaya and Jakarta-Padang routes.

Mandala resumed operations in April, after Singapore-based Tiger Airways bought a 33% stake in it. Saratoga Group holds the majority 51% stake, while the remaining 16% is held by previous shareholders and creditors of Mandala.

Mandala now operates four Airbus A320s from Jakarta to Medan, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur and from Medan to Singapore.
