AirAsia adds Bhubaneswar into its list of destinations in India with four weekly direct flights from Kuala Lumpur, which will commence operations on 26 April 2017, making this AirAsia’s 14th route into India.
This new route is operated exclusively by AirAsia Berhad and will offer guests an experience into the ancient city of Bhubaneswar, which is the capital of India’s Odisha state.
Aireen Omar, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Berhad said:
“With Bhubaneswar now added to our extensive network, AirAsia is unlocking the potential of international air travel from Kuala Lumpur to Eastern India and its surrounding areas. We are thrilled to be serving Bhubaneswar direct, a huge market that no other airline is serving directly from Malaysia.
“Now, everyone from across the region can connect to Bhubaneswar with AirAsia via Kuala Lumpur. At the same time, the people of Odisha can use Bhubaneswar as a gateway to our extensive route network to Asean and beyond, where they will have access to over 120 destinations across our extensive route network”.
The low-cost airline also connects Kuala Lumpur directly to Bengaluru, Visakhapatnam, Kolkata, Kochi, Hyderabad, Chennai, Tiruchirappalli, New Delhi; and from Bangkok to Chennai, Bengaluru, Kochi and Kolkata.
Also known as ‘Temple City of India’, Bhubaneswar is the capital of the Indian state of Odisha, formerly known as Orissa and has a population of over two million people.
