Now, daily flights to Singapore from Madurai

Now, flying to Singapore directly from Madurai will be possible all seven days a week, as Air India Express is introducing three more services a week from March 27. Besides, the same flight would be given a direct link between Kochi and Madurai.

Buoyed over the high patronage for its four days a week service that was started in September 2017, Air India Express has increased its frequency.

“We have lot of demand on Madurai-Singapore sector and are now increasing the frequency,” said its Chief Executive Officer, K. Shyam Sundar. The service on this sector is seeing an average occupancy rate of 90%.

As of now, Madurai-Singapore flights are being operated on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The flight departs Madurai at 11.15 p.m. and lands at Singapore at 6.15 a.m. (Singapore local time). In the return direction, it leaves Singapore at 10.40 a.m. and reaches Madurai at 12.25 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

The same flight is also providing a direct connection between Madurai and Delhi. “Madurai-Delhi sector is also doing well on many days,” he said.

The new services connecting Madurai with Singapore will be available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
