Budget carrier AirAsia India Friday announced the induction of 20th aircraft in its fleet, making it eligible to fly on international routes.
The Tata Sons-Air Asia invested joint venture airline also said it will add Mumbai in its network from early next year with the launch of daily flight services to the country’s financial hub from Bengaluru, starting January 15.
This will be Malaysian airliner group’s third entry into the Mumbai market after discontinuing the services to the city first by AirAsia Berhad in 2012 and then by its subsidiary Indonesian AirAsia X in April this year.
“We are pleased to make the much-awaited announcement of adding Mumbai to our network. We’re also happy to welcome our 20th Airbus A320 aircraft to our fleet,” Sunil Bhaskaran, chief executive officer, AirAsia India, said in a release.
The daily services on the Bengaluru-Mumbai route will commence from January 15, the airline said.
