Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 13 July 2009

 Beginning September 2009, India’s Kingfisher Airlines is to launch two new flights out of Mumbai. The two new routes will be Mumbai – Singapore and Mumbai – Hong Kong. Both will be daily direct return services and will be operated using brand new Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

The airline has also applied to the Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation to commence operations on the New Delhi – London – New Delhi sector. The flights on this route will also be operated using Airbus A330-200. Launch dates are expected to be confirmed once the requisite regulatory approvals are in place. The launch of this new route will mark the first time that Kingfisher Airlines will operate international flights out of New Delhi.

Besides this route, there are plans to start flights from New Delhi to Bangkok and from New Delhi to Dubai. The flights on these two routes will be operated using the Airbus A320 / A321 aircraft.

There are also plans for Kingfisher to commence flights between Mumbai and Bangkok, between Mumbai and Dubai and between Mumbai and Colombo. The flights on these routes will also be operated using the Airbus A320 / A321 aircraft.

Commenting on the plans for these new international routes, Mr. Prakash Mirpuri, Vice President, Corporate Communications, said, “The plan to launch these new services is consistent with our goal of redeploying capacity on routes with better yields as compared to domestic sectors. Our assessment of travel behavior in these markets, flyer preferences and projected demand indicates promising potential on these eight new international routes.”

Kingfisher Airlines will suspend its flights on the Bangalore – London – Bangalore route and its feeder service on the Colombo – Bangalore – Colombo route with effect from September 15,2009.

The airline said that all guests who are booked during this period will be accommodated on the London – Mumbai – London flights with appropriate connections.
