Malaysia Airlines cuts India flights


Malaysia Airlines, which suffered twin air disasters last year, is reducing capacity on its Indian routes as a part of its overall restructuring exercise.

The airline is withdrawing one of its two Kuala-Lumpur Delhi flights and will operate smaller Boeing 737 aircraft on its two Mumbai flights. The changes in schedule will come into effect from September 1, reports Business Standard.

At present, the airline flies a mix of Boeing 777 and Boeing 737 on Kuala Lumpur- Mumbai route 12 times a week but now will serve the route with two Boeing 737 flights.

The airline will have double daily flights to Mumbai (instead of 12 per week) but with reduced number of seats on offer. Also it will have only night departures from Mumbai and Delhi, which have better onward connecting flights to Australia and cities in South East Asia.
