SpiceJet & Trujet have shown interest in operating from upcoming state airports’

Hyderabad: In the pipeline for a while now, Telangana’s plans of setting up three new greenfield airports could soon become a reality. Apart from talks between multiple stakeholders reaching an “advanced stage”, aviation officials said that two domestic carriers too have expressed interest in launching operations at the state’s new facilities.
“Both SpiceJet and TruJet are on board. They have conveyed their keenness to begin services to and from these airports, once they become functional,” said a senior official.

The new destinations are: Warangal, Nizamabad and Kothagudem. All of them will be developed and managed by the Airport Authority of India with the aim to improve connectivity to and from tier 2 and tier 3 destinations within Telangana.
While a query raised with Spicejet received no response, a representative of Trujet said: “We are a Hyderabad-based airline operator. Whenever any new opportunity surfaces in the two states – of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh – we will be more than happy to be part of it.”
