Malaysia Airlines, following an 11-year hiatus in flying the route, will link Cochin (COK) in India to its Kuala Lumpur (KUL) hub from 1 September. Operated with a daily schedule, the oneworld member will service the 2,923-kilometre route with a 160-seat, 737-800. The route is contested by the carrier’s long-time LCC adversary AirAsia, which also flies daily. The Malaysian national carrier already flies 55 weekly services to India across five points – Bengaluru (10 per week), Chennai (14), Delhi (12), Hyderabad (seven), and Mumbai (12).
