Bengaluru international airport, or better known as Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) is all set to get three new International flights starting next month. In March, there would be three new flights which would connect various countries directly to Bengaluru. The first flight among these would be the direct flight from Bengaluru to Tokyo Narita airport. The flight would commence operations on March 29 and it would be a flight with daily frequency. The flight would not only provide direct connectivity to Japan but would also increase connectivity to the USA through Japan. The new flight would be started by Japan Airlines and the carrier would use Boeing 787-8 aircraft on the route.
Bengaluru Gains Connectivity to Jeddah
Another flight which would start on the same day from KIAL would be a flight to Jeddah. The carrier which will be starting this new flight would be the Arabian low-cost carrier Flynas. It is worth noting that Jeddah is considered as the gateway to the holy pilgrimage of Mecca and Medina and hence is an important destination. Currently, Etihad connects Bengaluru to Jeddah. As per the summer schedule of Bengaluru airport, the flight from Bengaluru would take off at 7:50 PM and reach Jeddah at 12:50 PM. This flight would be three days a week.
Another Flight to Germany by Lufthansa
German carrier, Lufthansa would also be starting a new flight connecting Bengaluru and Munich. Lufthansa would be operating an Airbus A350-900 for the summer flight between Bengaluru to Munich. The flight will depart from Bengaluru at 1.45 am and land in Munich at 7:30 AM. The frequency of the flight would be five days a week and it would not fly on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Apart from Munich, Bengaluru already has connectivity to a German city and four other European cities. There are already flights from Bengaluru to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London and Paris.
