MALINDO Air has launched a two-month long incentive programme in the hopes of growing its 700-strong base of travel consultants by threefold.
Between June 1 and July 31, travel consultants who issue tickets for FITs via the airline’s B2B system will receive a cash reward. Consultants will earn RM8 (US$2.60) per passenger for meeting monthly sales targets of 100-250 passengers per segment, RM10 per passenger for 251-500 passengers, RM12 per passenger for more than 501 passengers.
Consultants also stand to earn RM50 per passenger per segment for business class tickets.
Commissions will be calculated at the end of June and July, and the incentive paid out by the 15th of the following month.
Malindo Air CEO, Chandran Rama Muthy, said: “We are a (consultant) friendly airline and we wish to reward (those) who help us fly with high loads…Our services between Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu, Kuching registered average loads of 80 per cent.
“The scheme is timely as we are about to launch new turboprop services out of Subang Skypark (TTG Asia e-Daily, May 20, 2013) to Johor Bahru, Kota Bharu and Penang on Monday (June 3) and commence new jet services from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Sibu (June 11), Miri (June 14) and Tawau (June 26)” (TTG Asia e-Daily, May 13, 2013) .
