Kingfisher in major route expansion

KINGFISHER, the privately-owned Indian airline, has received permission to operate seven new international routes.  Start dates are expected to be confirmed shortly.  From Delhi the destinations are Bangkok, Dubai, Hong Kong and London.  Mumbai gains Bangkok, Colombo and Dubai.  The services on the Delhi – London and Delhi – Hong Kong routes will be operated using Airbus A330 aircraft whilst all the other routes feature two-class Airbus A320 series.  Currently the airline serves both Heathrow and Singapore twice daily from Mumbai, both routes gaining an extra frequency from 28 March.  Said to be the best equipped A330s so far from Airbus, the aircraft are dual cabin with all seats offering live TV channels including BBC World, CNN International, Bloomberg and Eurosport/ESPN via satellite as well as some 357 hours of programming on 36 channels. www.flykingfisher.com
