Malaysia Airlines is increasing its frequency from Kuala Lumpur into Mumbai to 12 times weekly effective 3 June 2013. Following greater demand from the market, one additional service will be made to the current daytime schedule of services put in by the carrier since September 2012. Starting June 2013, daytime services from Kuala Lumpur to Mumbai on flight MH174 depart every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Monday is the new day in the schedule.
Hugh Dunleavy, Director of Commercial,Malaysia Airlines, said, “South Asia, especially India, is a key market to Malaysia Airlines and we continuously strive to enhance our guests’ experience on-board. We are deploying our newest B738 aircraft on this route to bring the comfort level of guests to a higher level.”
Given the timings of the daytime flights, customers avoid wasting time on travel and arrive early in the day, at 11.45am into Mumbai. This gives them extra time to spend in the city of dreams. The daytime frequencies have also improved Malaysia Airlines’ connectivity to and from Australia, New Zealand and other ASEAN points .
South Asian routes have been of primary interest to Malaysia Airlines for a long time. It flies direct 93 times weekly to cities across South Asia namely New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Dhaka, Colombo, Male, and Kathmandu.
