NEW DELHI, July 16 (Bernama) â€" Hybrid airline, Malindo Air, has received permission to fly to Mumbai as well as a few South Indian destinations, said a report.
It was earlier reported that the airline would commence flying the Kuala Lumpur-New Delhi route soon.
Malindo Air will deploy the Boeing 737-900ER aircraft on the Kuala Lumpur-New Delhi route, bundling the sector with a 15kg baggage allowance, meals and inflight entertainment, TTG Asia reported.
"The airline is also likely to fly to Kolkata, Trivandrum, Chennai and Bangalore soon," Survottam Travelâ€™s managing director, Rajendra Churiwala was quoted as saying.
He said that the new flights are likely to be a hit in the market as clients would use Malindo, not only for travel to Kuala Lumpur and Kuching, but also to Singapore.
This is given Malindoâ€™s price competitiveness compared to airlines such as Singapore Airlines and SilkAir.
Malaysia recorded 780,000 tourist arrival from India last year. -- BERNAMA SM AS
