MH is not "adding" Hyderabad to their network. They have been flying there for almost 2 years now. I assume that your source is the also erroneous justplanes.com article on this issue?

I really could see Indian Airlines flying into PEN but what the hell want the do in Langkawi?

B747-437B is right, MH alredy flies to BLR and Hyderabad is served with one flight weekly.

I think what they are trying to say is that MAS will increase the frequency on those points

And whats about the IC flights to PEN and LGK? As I said before, PEN could make sense, LGK doesn't for me.

You would be very surprised at the amount of traffic that LGK generates from India. I know that AI has operated A310 charters there in the past, and it is constantly being promoted as a tourist alternative. There definitely will be a market for maybe 2x weekly A320s.

MAS had been serving Hyderabad and Bangalore for quite some time now (about 2 years, as someone mentioned earlier). As far as I know, MAS is planning to double their frequency into Chennai (Madras), i.e. from once daily to twice daily; increase the frequency from 4 weekly to a daily flight into mumbai (Bombay) and Delhi. Not too sure about Hyderabad and Bangalore though, which is being served once and twice weekly respectively.

PEN makes more sense than LGK, seeing that LGK only generates tourist traffic. IC could link PEN with BLR, both the silicon valley of each respective countries. What beats me is that IC have a larger presence in Malaysia compared to AI. I think AI only have 3-4 weekly flights into Malaysia compared to daily by IC. AI planning to expand further into Malaysia?
