Malaysia Airlines has just opened three new flight routes to various locations in India. They have launched flights to their seventh and eighth destinations in India, and they plan to open an additional route to the country in December. Last week, the airlines saw flights travel from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) to both Sri Guru Ram Das Ji International Airport in Amritsar (ATQ) and Thiruvananthapuram International Airport (TRV). The two locations are being flown twice a week with Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The availability of flights both to the northern and southern regions greatly aids the diverse set of travelers in Malaysia who would like to travel to different regions in India.
The expansion of our routes to India goes beyond mere connectivity, as this effort yields a range of positive outcomes, from driving economic growth to boosting tourism, nurturing cultural exchange, and facilitating global collaboration.”
– Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi
In December, Malaysia Airlines will open flights between KUL and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport in Ahmedabad (AMD). Apart from the new locations, Malaysia Airlines has flights from KUL to the Indian cities of Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Mumbai, and New Delhi.
