Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has unveiled plans to launch new daytime flights to India.
From 1 September 2012, the carrier will complement its current daily evening flights between Kuala Lumpur and three key Indian cities – Mumbai, Chennai and Bengaluru – with new daytime flights.
“These are exciting times for those who regularly patronise our flights to Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai. As part of our business plan strategy to win more customers, we have identified the vast growth potential in the Indian routes and are now set to increasing our services offering more flight choices. With new aircraft, authentic Indian in-flight cuisine and Malaysian Hospitality delivered by our award winning crew as well as competitive pricing, we invite customers to take advantage of this winning proposition and cherish their travel experiences with us,” said MAS’ Regional Senior Vice President for Malaysia & ASEAN, Encik Muzammil Mohamad.
