Vizag, the largest city of Andhra Pradesh state, is also a populous port city well known for its strategic location on the Bay of Bengal.

In a statement issued on 1st December, CEO of Malindo Air, Mr. Chandran Rama Muthy, said, “Our new routes in the past year have received very warm reception from the public, and hence we are introducing more to our current network. With Vizag, we aim to capture a bigger market for India where it will become our fifth destination in India and seventh in South Asia. Malindo Air will also be the sole airline on this route at the moment”.
“Moreover, we are adding capacities to our international destinations where there is incredibly strong demand, starting with Delhi and Bangkok first this December. We look forward to a brand new year with ambitious plans to strengthen our network and services,” added Chandran.
