Malaysia Airlines group CEO Izham Ismail said due to increasing demand, it is happy to announce its 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,” he said in a statement.
