New Delhi, November 23, 2007—Kingfisher Airlines, India’s favourite airline today announced that it has further expanded its route network with the introduction of three new services and the addition of two new destinations.

Kingfisher Airlines also announced the introduction of a new daily service from Varanasi to Khajuraho. With the introduction of this new service, Kingfisher Airlines now offers a new service connecting New Delhi with Khajuraho with a halt at Varanasi.

Commenting on the launch of these new routes, Mr. V. Raja, Global Sales Head-Kingfisher Airlines Limited, added, “The launch of these three new services is consistent with our goal of tapping emerging routes and offering convenient and frequent services that cater to the unmet needs of air travellers in India. Given the huge tourism potential of these cities and the importance that they occupy on the pilgrimage map of India, we see potential to develop and grow a market for these routes while simultaneously exploring virgin market segments that would typically fly on this circuit. We look forward to growing this market”.
“The New Delhi-Jammu sector is a route that has a huge untapped potential and with the superlative Kingfisher experience, we hope to capture this rapidly growing market”, added Mr. Raja.
