AirAsia India has announced new flights connecting Chennai with Bengaluru and Bhubaneswar. AirAsia India will start operations on the new flights from the last week of February. The move comes over two years after the airline had discontinued operations from Chennai. This is AirAsia India’s 17th destination along with the induction of the 15th aircraft. Effective February 24, the airline will operate three daily flights to Bengaluru and two to Bhubaneswar from Chennai. According to media reports, AirAsia India hopes to grow its fleet size to 21 aircraft by the end of 2018.
Chennai boasts scenic beaches, temples, art, music and culture; not to forget the fervour for showbiz! Chennai is also home to some of the stalwarts of Indian cinema! With the AirAsia Group already operating direct flights to Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok from Chennai, they expect a boom in inbound and outbound tourism across the region.
“We ended 2017 on a high note and are delighted to continue the momentum in 2018. We reinforce our commitment to enhancing connectivity and making air travel affordable to all,” AirAsia India managing director and chief executive Amar Abrol said.
