AirAsia India, the domestic arm of Malaysian airline AirAsia, on Sunday added Kochi to its network with the launch of a daily flight service from Bangalore.


AirAsia India, which stated operations in the country on June 12, now has services to Goa, Chennai and Kochi from Bangalore.

"AirAsia flight from Bangalore landed in Kochi six minutes before the scheduled arrival time of 9.55 am. The return flight also took off three minutes before the scheduled departure time of 10.20 am," a Cochin International Airport official told PTI in Mumbai.

The airline had offered limited promotional seats for all-inclusive-fare of Rs. 500 for the Bangalore-Kochi sector.

"We have done a complete analysis on our third destination and we are confident we will be able to reach out to more first-time fliers," AirAsia India chief executive Mittu Chandilya had said while announcing the introductory fare last month.

The no-frills carrier is a 49:30:21 joint venture of AirAsia Berhad, Tata Sons and Arun Bhatia's Telstra Tradeplace. It aims to focus on connecting tier-II cities.
