Direct flights from city to Mumbai, New Delhi evoke good response

The introduction of direct flights from Visakhapatnam to Delhi and Mumbai by Jet Airways was well received by air travellers. The evening flight to Delhi connects to 232 international destinations. Passengers from the city to onward international destinations can get their boarding passes and baggage checking done at the Vizag airport itself.

This flight connects to Mumbai in the mornings. Passengers from Vizag can get onward international connections from Mumbai. There is a loud demand from passengers for direct flights to Delhi. Air India, which is already plying a morning flight to teh national capital, is now planning to introduce another direct flight. IndiGo is already operating two flights to Delhi, according to a tour operator.

The proposal of Nok Air to operate direct flights from Vizag to Bangkok from November this year will see the realisation of the long-cherished dream of tourists from the city. The airline is planning to operate thrice a week. The new flights are expected to boost air traffic from Vizag further.
