Kingfisher Airlines

Kingfisher Airlines
has officially confirmed that it will be launching new flights across the world from early January 2009. Flights between Mumbai and London Heathrow will be inaugurated from January 5th using an Airbus A 330-200 and its flight timings are as follows:

IT 007 Dep BOM 1350 Arr LHR 1755
IT 008 Dep LHR 2030 Arr BOM 1100+1

Other international routes that it will be launching are as follows:

BOM / HKG - daily A 332s from Jan 12th

- daily A 332s from Jan 16th

MAA / CMB - daily A 320s from Jan 19th

- daily A 320s from Jan 19th...connects with BLR-LHR in both directions.


By looking at the above mentioned flight timings, one feels that this flight will be primarily catering towards O&D traffic between LON & BOM and the only form of feeder traffic that it can obtain is from JFK (with AA 116/141), Manchester and other cities in India. These new developments also confirm that KF will be receiving 2 more A 332s this month. On a personal level, I would really like to see this airline do well on BOM-LHR/SIN/HKG as its in-flight product on board its A 332s is world class especially in the premium cabin.
