The Chamber said Air India Express has introduced international flights between Kuala Lumpur and Trichy recently.

On behalf of trade and industry and the general public, the TN Chamber appealed to the Chief Executive Officer of the Air India Express and Indigo Airlines to commence Air India Express flight operations in Madurai and Kuala Lumpur as Madurai is centrally located in Tamil Nadu and well connected by air, road, and rail network to other important cities.
