Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia Bhd shared photos and videos of its maiden flight between Kuala Lumpur and Bhubaneswar on its Twitter page this Wednesday. After successfully landing at the airport in this Indian city, the plane was given the customary cannon water salute.
The airline tweeted at 10:19 PM:
We’ve landed in #Bhubaneswar!
And in another tweet added:
It's #Bhubaneswar! We're flying 4x weekly!
So, we already know that AirAsia is going to fly four times per week to the capital and the largest city in the Indian state of Odisha, and it will also be a direct line. The route will be operated exclusively by AirAsia Bhd, under flight code AK.
This route will also be AirAsia’s 14th into India.
