India’s largest low-cost carrier begins Chennai-Kuala Lumpur route
Those looking to make a trip to Chennai, whether for business or pleasure, now have more flight options.
Indian low-cost airline IndiGo commenced its flight from Chennai (MAA) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL) on July 15, 2019, with a daily service utilising the Airbus A320 aircraft. The largest airline in India by passengers carried and fleet size is the fourth to operate the MAA-KUL route after Malaysia Airlines, Malindo Air and AirAsia.
Located on the Coromandel Coast off the Bay of Bengal, Chennai is the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and the biggest cultural, economic and educational centre of South India. Formerly known as Madras, the fourth largest city in India (and among the most-visited by tourists) is steeped in rich South Indian culture, boasting historic landmarks and buildings, long sandy beaches, and cultural and art centres – as well as an array of ancient temples and churches. Chennai is also home to the Tamil film industry, which produces over 200 films every year on average, among the highest in the Indian film industry.
IndiGo currently also operates non-stop flights between Kuala Lumpur (KUL)-Bengaluru (BLR) and Kuala Lumpur (KUL)-Delhi (DEL) daily.
