SpiceJet announces new flights from Amritsar to Bangkok, Goa

Chandigarh: The private carrier, SpiceJet on Tuesday marked the launch of its two new daily flights from Amritsar to Bangkok and Goa, commencing on 6 November by handing over the first ticket to Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh.

A three-member team from SpiceJet, led by Chief Customer Service Officer Kamal Hingorani, met the CM at his official residence to announce the launch of the new flights from Sri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport.

Lauding the initiative, Amarinder said that there was a huge potential of tourism in Punjab, especially the holy city of Amritsar, which is visited by a large number of devotees thronging from around the world to pay obeisance at Darbar Sahib and Durgiana Mandir, besides paying tributes to the great martyrs at Jallianwala Bagh.

The CM also asked the SpiceJet authorities to start more flights between Amritsar and other destinations in the country and abroad. He also emphasised the need to start a direct flight from Mohali International Airport to Singapore in view of the huge demand from the people in the region.
