New Singapore option with Sikkim flight debut

Dum Dum: Low-cost airline IndiGo will start a daily flight from Calcutta to Singapore in mid-September, coinciding with SpiceJet flying to Sikkim just ahead of the Puja season.

The average return fare for the Singapore flight could be around Rs 16,000, almost half the market baseline of Rs 30,000.

"IndiGo will operate an Airbus A320. The flight will take off at 6.55pm and land in Singapore at 1.45am local time. On the return journey, take-off will be at 1.40pm and arrival at 3.25pm," an official of the airline said.

The only airline that currently directly flies to Singapore daily from the city is Singapore Airlines.
