Chennai, January 29, 2018: SpiceJet, the country’s favourite low-cost carrier, today announced 20 new non-stop flights on domestic routes starting from February 11, 2018. With this, the airline also strengthens its network across South with 18 new flights. Out of these 18 flights, ten will be catering to the popular tourist destinations in the state of Andhra Pradesh. SpiceJet also will become the only carrier to operate between Kolkata – Jabalpur and Bengaluru – Puducherry with daily direct flights. The new flights connecting the metro cities with the non-metros will give fresh impetus to the airlines regional connectivity theme – ‘Connect the unconnected’.
The airline is all set to introduce daily direct flights on the Bengaluru – Rajahmundry, Chennai – Mangalore and Guwahati – Chennai routes and a direct flight between Bengaluru – Tirupati which would operate on all days except Tuesdays.
SpiceJet will also enhance its operations on the Chennai – Vishakhapatnam (second frequency), Kolkata – Vishakhapatnam (second frequency), Chennai – Vijayawada (third frequency) and Bengaluru – Chennai (fifth frequency) routes with non-stop additional frequencies. While the airline will operate daily flights between Chennai – Vishakhapatnam, Kolkata – Vishakhapatnam and Chennai – Vijayawada, services between Bengaluru – Chennai will be operational on all days except Tuesdays.
SpiceJet, which is the largest regional player in the country, will serve on all the routes with its Bombardier Q400 aircraft except for the Chennai – Guwahati route where it will deploy its Boeing 737 aircraft.
Ms Shilpa Bhatia, Chief Sales & Revenue Officer - SpiceJet, said, “We start 2018 on a high note. Enhanced connectivity remains at the core of SpiceJet and we aim to further expand our network by connecting more non-metro destinations with metro destinations in the current year.”
