Passengers requiring flights to India may be interested to hear the latest news from Kingfisher Airlines, one of only six five-star carriers in the world.

Officials have announced that a connection is to be provided between Bangalore and London, making it the first time the airline has operated internationally.

The daily route will open as of September 3rd and passengers will travel in style on an Airbus A330-220.

Luxuries will include an in-flight entertainment system with 36 channels, mood lighting, webchat and email, as well as built-in charging points for laptops and mobile phones.

“I am delighted to announce the launch of Kingfisher’s maiden international service between Bangalore and London’s Heathrow airport. We will set new standards in international travel. I feel that the carefully selected routes that Kingfisher will offer great growth potential,” said Dr Vijay Mallya, chairman and chief executive of Kingfisher Airlines.

Kingfisher commenced operations domestically in India in 2005 and has since become the largest privately-owned airline in the country following a merger with Air Deccan.

The carrier is expected to launch more international flights shortly.
