SpiceJet to operate Hyderabad-Colombo among 12 new flights

Budget carrier SpiceJet announced a mix of 12 domestic and international flights to be operated from March 31st and April 15th, 2019 respectively, which will cater to various routes, especially under the government’s regional connectivity scheme.

In a statement released on March 5, the airline said that it will start (back and forth) flights on Kishangarh-Ahmedabad, Lakhimpur-Guwahati and Jaipur-Amritsar routes under the third phase of UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik) scheme where it bagged 22 proposals, highest among the 11 airlines that won rights to operate flights.

While the airline will operate daily fights between Guwahati-Lakhimpur and Jaipur-Amritsar, it will operate flights between Kishangarh and Ahmedabad on all days except Sundays.

“SpiceJet sees huge demand to and from Kishangarh and Lakhimpur and has hence augmented connectivity from these cities. Currently, the airline flies to Delhi and Kolkata from Kishangarh and Lakhimpur respectively,” the airline said in the statement.
