Low-cost carrier Air India Express will be flying from Chennai to Kuala Lumpur from October under a new agreement to liberalize air travel between Malaysia and India.

The carrier, which is a subsidiary of state-run Air India, is finalizing details of its entry to Malaysia following the signing of the pact earlier this month. They will start to fly from Kuala Lumpur to Chennai in the first phase and expand later to Trichy in southern India and to other Indian destinations.

Malaysia will be the carrier's second international destination after Singapore. Air India Express is negotiating to fly to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, rather than to the low-cost terminal near the main airport.

For full details of the new, please find it at International Herald Tribune.
