On November 8, 2023, Malaysia’s flag carrier Malaysia Airlines introduced direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Amritsar. Following that, Malaysia Airlines has now introduced another direct flight, this time, to Trivandrum from Kuala Lumpur.
The inaugural flight, MH0116, was welcomed warmly at Thiruvananthapuram International Airport (TRV) at 11 am IST. Subsequently the flight departed from the airport on November 10 to Kuala Lumpur. With this development, the airline became the first full-service premium carrier to offer flights to South Asia and the Pacific from Trivandrum and Amritsar.
This expansion has improved the airline’s network in India to 8 major locations including New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, and Amritsar. Malaysia Airlines is all set to begin flying to the third Indian route, Ahmedabad, from December 1, 2023, marking it as the 9th major hub.
