Indonesian low-cost carrier Tigerair Mandala will suspend nine services and reduce frequencies on two other routes following a review of its network.

The airline will suspend daily Surabaya-Hong Kong and Surabaya-Kuala Lumpur services on 11 February, with the daily Jakarta-Kuala Lumpur and Medan-Singapore services to follow on 18 February, it says.

Meanwhile, the four times weekly Pekanbaru-Singapore and daily Jakarta-Yogyakarta services will end on 3 March, followed by the four times weekly Surabaya-Bangkok and daily Jakarta-Surabaya services two weeks later. From 11 April, the daily Jakarta-Hong Kong service will also be cut.

Tigerair Mandala will also halve its frequency on the Jakarta-Pekanbaru route to daily on 18 February, and Jakarta-Singapore frequencies will reduce from five to four times daily on 3 March.

Despite the suspensions and reductions, it will continue to operate flights from Jakarta to Bangkok, Denpasar, Pekanbaru and Singapore, Denpasar to Hong Kong and Singapore, Singapore to Surabaya, and from Yogyakarta to Pekanbaru and Palembang, the airline adds.

Flightglobal's Ascend Online Fleets database shows that Tigerair Mandala has nine Airbus A320s in service.
