Malaysia Airlines, the national carrier of Malaysia, is gearing up to double the frequency on its Kuala Lumpur-Thiruvananthapuram route as of April 3 in recognition of positive load factor performance and growing demand on the route. The airline commenced its inaugural flight to Trivandrum in November 2023, operating at two times weekly, and will increase to four flights weekly beginning April 2024. 

Malaysia Airlines said in a press statement that this decision was made in response to the recent increase in frequency between Amritsar and Kuala Lumpur starting on January 15.

The statement adds that with this expansion, this will bring the airline’s connectivity into India to 71 flights weekly.

The airline says that it currently offers flights to nine major cities in India, including New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Amritsar and Thiruvananthapuram.
