Malaysia Airlines has announced its return to Kochi with its inaugural flight set for take-off on 31st March 2019.
The airline will thereafter run a daily flight schedule to Kochi via MH108, serviced by B737-800 aircraft, which will depart Kuala Lumpur at 10.40pm and arrive Kochi at 12.01am the following day. On the return flight, MH109 will depart Kochi at 1am and will arrive Kuala Lumpur at 7.50am the same day.
Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Executive Officer, Captain Izham Ismail said, “Due to increasing demand, we are happy to announce our return on the daily Kuala Lumpur-Kochi route. India has always been an important market and therefore, reinstating Kochi makes business sense. We also have recently increased capacity on the Kuala Lumpur-Mumbai route by swapping one of the B737-800 aircraft to the wide body A330-300 as this shows our commitment to the India market.”
Malaysia Airlines will be having a special promotion in conjunction with its inaugural flight, for travel from 31st March 2019 until 31st August 2019. These special fares include 30kg baggage allowance on Economy Class or 40kg baggage allowance on Business class, complimentary meals and inflight entertainment.
