Malaysia Airlines reintroduces daily services between Kuala Lumpur and Kochi
Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) is pleased to announce the reintroduction of a daily service from Kuala Lumpur to Kochi, in India effective from 31 March 2019.
The introduction of the new service compliments the Airline’s existing services to Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and New Delhi. It means that MAB will now offer 60 flights per week to six popular Indian destinations from Kuala Lumpur, providing business and leisure travellers with seamless connectivity from Australian cities including Sydney and Melbourne.
The daily service will be operated by Boeing 737-800s and is available for sale from 15 January 2019. Flights will depart daily from Kuala Lumpur at 2240 each evening, with return flights from Kochi departing at 0100 and arriving into Kuala Lumpur at 0750.
Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Executive Officer, Captain Izham Ismail, says the introduction of the service is timely.
“Given increasing demand for travel to India, we are really happy to announce the return of the Airline’s daily Kuala Lumpur-Kochi route. India has always been a really important market for us. So, reinstating a service to a major port like Kochi makes business sense. We’ve also recently increased capacity on the Kuala Lumpur-Mumbai route by swapping one of the B737-800 aircraft to the wide body A330-300 in demonstration of our commitment to the Indian market.”
