Kingfisher Airlines, which recently launched new flights to India from London, has been hailed as a luxury choice for travellers by the company’s boss.

Vijay Mallaya, Kingfisher Airlines chairman, said that the carrier competes with others such as British Airways easily because it offers services at better prices and has more efficient staff.

“We offer an infinitely better service. We are the Harrods of the sky,” he commented to the Telegraph.

Mr Mallaya added that services from other carriers were “more staid” and less friendly.

The company is to begin offering flights to Mumbai from London next month, making it one of five that do so.

Kingfisher is one of only six airlines worldwide to have a five-star rating from Skytrax and was voted the most admired airline brand in the Asia-Pacific region in a recent survey.

It operates 218 flights a day and has a network of 38 destinations, with regional and long-haul international services.
