From Hong Kong, flight IT 032 will leave at 18:15 and arrive the same day at 21:45 in New Delhi, local time. The flights from Delhi-Hong Kong will operate daily (except on Tuesday’s) and daily from Hong Kong-New Delhi (except Wednesday’s).

Commenting on the launch of this new international route, Dr. Vijay Mallya, Chairman and CEO, Kingfisher Airlines Limited said, “We have set new standards in international travel with the unique Kingfisher experience that has earned us a 5 Star rating from Skytrax. Given the strong linkages between India and Hong Kong, we believe that there is untapped potential and these new routes promise to serve the unmet needs of discerning corporate and leisure flyers. Within a very short time since launch, Kingfisher Airlines emerged as the market leader on the Mumbai – Hong Kong route and we expect to consolidate our leadership position further by being the preferred airline on the New Delhi – Hong Kong route too, very soon.”

The flights on the New Delhi-Hong Kong route will be operated using a brand new Airbus A330-200, configured in two classes - Kingfisher First and Kingfisher Class.

“There is good news for Kingfisher Airlines’ guests travelling to Macau via Hong Kong from New Delhi and Mumbai. Kingfisher Airlines has been accorded approval to commence through tagging of baggage for guests travelling from Mumbai and Delhi and onward from Hong Kong on Turbo Jet ferries to Macau. Similarly Turbo Jet will tag Kingfisher Airlines guests’ baggage from Macau to Mumbai and Delhi. The through tagging of baggage to and from Macau will provide guests a convenient check-in experience. Guests whose bags have been through checked in will now just need to show the tags at the Ferry check-in counter at Hong Kong and the Turbo Jet staff will reconcile and load such bags directly onto the ferry,” said Mr. Manoj Chacko, Executive Vice President-Commercial, Kingfisher Airlines Limited.
