IndiGo’s new flight to B’luru to make night halt at city

Nagpur: In a mixed fortune for the city, low cost carrier IndiGo would be starting its second flight on Pune-Bengaluru via Nagpur route while its competitor AirAsia would be shutting operations from Friday.
IndiGo’s flight would be second one to make night halt in the city after GoAir, which would bring much needed revenue for the airport operated by Mihan India Limited (MIL), a joint venture between Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) and Airports Authority of India (AAI).

“IndiGo’s second flight would make a halt from 2.05am to 5.20am everyday at the airport. The carrier would start its flight from Pune at 12.30am which would reach Nagpur at 2.05am. It would take off for Bengaluru at 5.20am,” MIL director Vijay Mulekar told TOI.

IndiGo already operates multiple flights on Pune and Bengaluru routes and latest one would help flyers in a big way, considering heavy rush on both the routes, particularly of IT professionals.

Mulekar added that IndiGo has already floated advertisements in this regard, released schedule and even ticket sales have started.
