Gurgaon, Aug 22 (IANS) Aiming to penetrate the underserved markets within its domestic network and enhancing regional connectivity, SpiceJet has introduced new flights with a key focus to get the northeastern states on its pan-India radar, a company statement said here on Monday.
“Starting October 4, adding new markets like Silchar, Gorakhpur and Aizawl, the airline will operate new flights on sectors like Kolkata-Silchar-Guwahati, Kolkata-Aizawl-Guwahati and Kolkata-Gorakhpur-Delhi. Kolkata-Visakhapatnam-Kolkata flights will be effective from November 1,” the statement said.
The airline is offering tickets at an all inclusive introductory fare of Rs 2,127 for the Kolkaka-Aizawl and Rs 1,899 for the Aizawl-Guwahati sectors; Rs 3,699 for the Kolkata-Silchar and Rs 4,188 for Silchar-Guwahati sectors; Rs 3,210 for the Kolkata-Gorakhpur and Rs 3,335 for Gorakhpur-Delhi sectors.
The new schedule will also include additional frequencies with a direct flight on its existing routes of Kolkata-Bagdogra and Kolkata-Guwahati, the statement added.
“North-east, despite being a crucial tourist locale, has been deprived of good air connectivity. Hence, our new schedule lays special attention on this region, connecting the major hub-points of the seven sister states. And we look forward to further strengthening our presence in this market in the near future,” said SpiceJet Senior Vice President (Commercial) Shilpa Bhatia.
