Malaysia and India to further liberalise air traffic rights

Malaysia's Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha, stated there is a need for further liberalisation of air traffic rights between Malaysia and India to accommodate future growth and capitalise on both countries growing aviation industry (Bernama/btimes.com.my, 03-Jul-2010).

Meanwhile, Malaysia Airlines announced it is confident it will help achieve the Tourism Ministry's target of attracting 1 million Indian visitors to Malaysia by the year-end: 700,000 passengers currently travel between India and Malaysia.

Malaysia Airlines: "The Indian market is huge but consider the strength MAS has in this market. We have been serving the Kuala Lumpur-New Delhi route since the 1980s and the frequency rose by 10 times before the crisis.” Azahar Hamid, Regional Manager - South Asia for Malaysia Airlines.
