The inaugural flight of Batik Air, carrying 121 passengers, was received with great enthusiasm and celebrated with a special ceremony at Velana International Airport, including a water salute.

The airline has appointed Concierge Group Maldives as its General Sales Agent (GSA) to manage sales, reservations, and ticketing services in the Maldives. With a schedule of 6 direct flights per week connecting Malaysia and the Maldives, Batik Air operates Boeing 737 aircraft, accommodating up to 162 passengers.
