Malaysian Airlines announced its return to Kochi with its inaugural flight on 31 March 2019.
The airline will be flying daily Kochi via MH108, serviced by the B737-800, which will depart Kuala Lumpur at 10.40pm and arrive Kochi at 12.01am the following day. The return flight, MH109 will depart Kochi at 1am and will arrive Kuala Lumpur at 7.50am the same day.
The route was first introduced in September 2013 but was suspended in 2015 without giving any reason. With its comparatively cheaper rates, the KL- Cochin connection flight was a blessing for the Malayali community in Australia and its cancellation raised many eyebrows at that time.
