Ticket booking begins for Air India’s Madurai-Singapore flight

Madurai: It is official now. Air India Express will start its Madurai-Singapore direct flight from September 15 with its ticket booking opening on Wednesday late evening.

“Madurai-Singapore sector has a very good traffic potential. A large number of Tamils, who have settled down in the island nation, regularly visit their ancestral home in the southern hinterland close to Madurai and for pilgrimage in southern districts,” Air India Express Chief Executive Officer K. Shyamsundar said.

Besides, the same flight would provide a non-stop service between New Delhi and Madurai.

Mr. Shyamsundar said that flight timings on both New Delhi-Madurai and Madurai-Singapore sectors are very convenient for the passengers. “Those who leave Delhi at 7 p.m. can reach Madurai at 10.15 p.m., just the right time to hit the bed,” he added.
