Malaysia has agreed to allow India's Air Sahara to fly the Kuala Lumpur-New Delhi route.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said this in response to reports in India that aviation authorities there had threatened to reduce landing rights for Malaysia Airlines (MAS) in a tit-for-tat move, which could have an impact on Malaysia's tourism industry.
Chan said the issue had been resolved amicably after Malaysia agreed to allow the airline to fly the route.
It is believed that the Indians were resorting to such action after MAS allegedly asked that Air Sahara not be allowed to fly to Kuala Lumpur from New Delhi on grounds that passenger volume on the route was low.
