Kingfisher Airlines continues to build its international route network with the back-to-back launch of services from Mumbai to Hongkong and Singapore. The two cities are the carrier’s sixth and seventh overseas points, in addition to already flying to Bangkok, London, Colombo, Dhaka and Dubai.

Both services will use a brand-new A330-200 aircraft with two class configurations – 30 seats in Kingfisher First (Business Class) and 187 seats in Kingfisher Class (Economy Class).

The daily non-stop flight between Mumbai and Hongkong will commence on September 16 with flight IT 071 departing from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport at 10:55 pm and arriving at Hongkong International Airport at 8:05 am the following day. Return flight IT 072 will leave Hongkong at 2:05 pm the same day.

The daily non-stop flight between Mumbai and Singapore departs the next day, September 17 with flight IT 029 departing Mumbai at 11:05pm and arriving in Singapore the following day at 7:05 am, local time.

“A huge opportunity exists for Kingfisher Airlines in Hongkong and Singapore,” said airline vice-president of global sales Siva Ramachandran. “With our comprehensive domestic network in India and our growing international footprint, we are strongly positioned to move forward even in this challenging environment.”

Kingfisher Airlines boasts a fleet of 71 aircraft that serves 65 cities in India.
