SpiceJet to launch 14 new domestic flights

SpiceJet announced the introduction of 14 new domestic flights effective from July 1, including services on four new routes. Headquartered in Gurgaon, India, SpiceJet is a low-cost airline and also the third largest in the country by the number of domestic passengers carried. 

SpiceJet airlines will introduce new direct flights on the Pune-Patna, Chennai-Rajahmundry, Hyderabad-Calicut and Bengaluru-Tuticorin sectors. Operations on the Delhi-Patna (second frequency), Bengaluru-Rajahmundry, (second frequency) and Mumbai-Bengaluru (fifth frequency) sectors will also be enhanced. The frequencies introduced on the Hyderabad-Calicut, Bengaluru-Tuticorin and Bengaluru-Rajahmundry routes will be operational on all days except Tuesdays. Whereas Patna-Pune will be operational on all days except Saturdays.

SpiceJet also announced that bookings for the new flights are open and customers willing to plan their travel can book flights from SpiceJet’s official website- spicejet.com and app.

SpiceJet chief sales and revenue officer Shilpa Bhatia said, “We are rapidly expanding our fleet with new Boeing 737 aircraft and Q400 regional turboprops. This means an addition of new routes and destinations for our customers with non-stop flights.”

With the provision of these new flights, passengers from relatively small towns like Rajahmundry, Patna, Tuticorin and Calicut now have easy access to travel to other cities, both on SpiceJet’s domestic as well as international network via multiple onward connections from key metropolitan cities like Bengaluru, Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad.

The airlines recently introduced direct flights from Tuticorin to Bengaluru at a range of INR 2,999 inclusive of all services. Passengers can book their flight tickets for INR 2,999 in the “spicesaver” category and for INR 3,752 in the “spicemax” category.

This step was taken in line with the airline’s commitment for direct connectivity and on-boarding non-metros and smaller cities onto the national aviation map.

With increasing competition each day, other airlines recently introduced new flights as well.

  1. IndiGo announced daily flights from Kolkata to Dhaka and Jorhat, starting at an all-inclusive price of INR 3,199. It will also operate second daily non-stop flights between Chennai and Calicut at an all-inclusive price of INR 2,100. Indigo has also introduced Tuticorin as its destination.
  1. Jet Airways has also begun direct tri-weekly flight for Nashik to New Delhi under the regional connectivity scheme (RCS). One-way economy fare on the route under this scheme of the carrier starts at INR 2,980. The carrier will also launch a tri-weekly flight in the Allahabad-Nagpur-Indore sector from June 16.
