Well it looks like Jet and Sahara is all set to get some spirited competition from good old Indian Airlines for their new services to South East Asia

A check of the Indian Airlines booking engine for the summer schedules shows the following new flights

DEL BKK KUL

IC 853 0435/1005-1125/1430 Daily

KUL BKK DEL

IC 854 1530/1635-1735/2020 Daily


This makes the frequency on DEL -BKK to twice daily with the existing DEL-BKK- SIN flight continuing to operate.

BOM BKK

IC 593 0425/1000 Daily


BKK BOM

IC 594 1940/2200 Daily



MAA BKK

IC 689 1415 1845 Tue/Fri/Sun

BKK MAA

IC 690 1120/1300 Tue/Fri/Sun

BLR BKK

IC 685 1345/1845 Mon/Thu

BKK BLR

IC 686 1120/1315 Mon/Thu


HYD BKK

IC 683 1355/1845 Wed/Sat

IC 684 1120/1320 Wed/Sat



The HYD/BLR/MAA flights replace the existing hopping flight twice as week on the HYD-BLR-MAA-BKK route and add more capacity .

In addition the existing fwice daily flights on the MAA - SIN and the daily flights on the MAA - KUL and BLR - SIN routes will continue to operate.


I had travelled three of these routes earlier (MAA SIN, SIN BKK and BKK MAA) and found the service perfectly adequate and defintely worth the price you pay. I had an online transfer at SIN (Flying MAA SIN to connect to BKK on the same day and things went without a hitch).

At least you avoid the midnight madness at DEL, and get to sleep for a couple of hours before hitting the road!

... to sit for at least 7 hrs (to SIN, then layover, then to KUL), calculated without possible delays, in one of these mini A320, with grumpy IC flight attendants around me, with complete lack of privacy ... I-: At least, these old 320 have wonderful pitch, and the 80s sweaty seats are so much more comfortable than the modern so-called aerodymamic or whatsoever seats

Why has not any carrier announced non-stop service between BOM-HKG yet,

I think there is enough o&d to sustain atleast a single daily widebody flight
