Kingfisher daily direct flights from Bangalore and Chennai to Colombo

Kingfisher Airlines, India’s first and only Five Star Airline, rated by Skytrax today extended its international footprint by launching daily direct flights from Bangalore to Colombo and Chennai to Colombo. Guests traveling on this route can now experience Five Star service, thanks to the unique flying experience offered by Kingfisher Airlines. The flights on these two new routes will be operated using brand new Airbus A320 aircraft featuring personalized in-flight entertainment on every seat, gourmet cuisine and Five Star service at the hands of a warm and thoroughly professional cabin crew.

The flights are conveniently timed with the departure from Bangalore at 3.00 pm in the afternoon and reaching Colombo at 4.20 pm and the return flight takes off from Colombo at 9.15 am and reaches Bangalore at 10.30 am. Also from Chennai, there is a daily departure at 06.45 am reaching Colombo at 8.05 am with a return flight at 5.30 pm that gets into Chennai at 06.45 pm. The launch of these flights will not only cater to the leisure travelers but will also cater to entrepreneurs and traders frequently flying on these routes. With these convenient timings, guests from Colombo can also enjoy easy access to India’s widest airline network.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Siva Ramachandran – Vice President Global Sales, Kingfisher Airlines Limited said, “We are delighted to welcome Colombo as the latest destination in our global network, and we look forward to extending our hospitality to guests on this new service. The warm relationship between India and Sri Lanka has grown over the years, and we believe the introduction of Kingfisher Airlines’ new service will help foster even closer bilateral trade and tourism ties. The initial response to the launch of these new flights has been extremely encouraging and we look forward to rapidly establishing our presence in the Sri Lankan market”

The introduction of these flights marks the continuation of the second phase of international route expansion plans of Kingfisher Airlines. Kingfisher Airlines launched daily direct services between Mumbai and London Heathrow. In the first phase of the roll out of its international route network, Kingfisher Airlines commenced services from Bangalore to London Heathrow.
Kingfisher Airlines has blazed a trail of innovations and introduced a range of market-firsts that have completely redefined the whole experience of flying. By elevating its customers to a level of being ‘guests’ and not just passengers, Kingfisher Airlines has endeared itself to consumers. A growing testimony of this is the numerous awards and recognitions that Kingfisher Airlines has won at domestic as well as International level.
