Vijayawada to Singapore flight to take off on Dec. 4

The stage is set for the first ever direct flight from Vijayawada to foreign shores i.e. Singapore to take off on December 4. It is a weekly twice non-stop service (Airbus A-320) being introduced by IndiGo with the support from the State government in the form of viability gap funding.

Bookings for these flights have been opened on the corporate website of Indigo Airlines and efforts are under way to establish air connectivity with Dubai in a few months, according to an official release.

It was stated that Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu sounded confident about the Singapore flight giving global exposure to Amaravati and boost economic development of the region by attracting more foreign investors to Amaravati. The increased activity caused the passenger traffic at Vijayawada airport to triple over the last five years.
The CM sought emphasis to be laid on the development of Bhogapuram (Vizianagaram) and Dagadarti (Nellore) airports which have good potential.
