Following a rise in air traffic in India, Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is planning to increase its operations in 2011.
MAS’s regional senior-vice president for South Asia, Azahar Hamid, explained that the airline has enjoyed almost full capacity flights from Indian airports since the start of the year.
“For next year we are looking at 30 to 40 per cent growth rate in load. We are going very strong in India. Based on our market projections, traffic going out of India is very strong and positive,” he told Bernama.
The airline currently offers flights to Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai but is planning to expand into services to other Indian cities in the future.
Malaysia Airlines handles around 50,000 passengers per day and flies to 100 destinations.
