Malaysia Airlines Bolsters Connectivity from India, Commences Direct Flights between Ahmedabad and Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia Airlines Enhances Indian Visitors with Boundless Travel Opportunities

In a significant development for travellers hailing from Gujarat, Malaysia Airlines commenced its operations between Ahmedabad and Kuala Lumpur on 1 December. The inaugural flight departing from Kuala Lumpur via MH106 was warmly welcomed upon arrival at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport (AMD) at 9:40 pm local time, before continuing its journey back to Kuala Lumpur at 10:40 pm local time via flight MH107.

This development follows the commencement of Malaysia Airlines’ direct operations from Amritsar and Trivandrum last month. With the addition of direct services from Ahmedabad, the airline will be operating 65 weekly flights to India from nine key hubs. Presently, the airline operates flights from New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Amritsar, and Trivandrum. In addition, the airline also recently announced that beginning 15 January 2024, it will be increasing its frequency to Amritsar from two times weekly to four times weekly following strong demands and load factor performance.
