Air India flights from Vizag to Vijayawada soon

Visakhapatnam: Visakhapatnam will soon have flight services to Rajahmundry and Vijayawada. While IndiGo has announced daily flights to Rajahmundry from September 17, Air India has confirmed time slots at the airport for its regular flight services to Vijayawada in the  evening. In all probability, Air India will operate flight services later this month. The slots confirmed for the Air India Vijayawada flight at Vizag are 8.55 pm and 9.20 pm.

The development assumes significance in the wake of two international airlines’ recent decision to operate flights from Vizag.Scoot Airlines, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, earlier announced that it will be operating services five times a week (Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) from Vizag from Oct 27. The flight will depart Singapore at 8.45 pm and arrive in Vizag at 10 pm. It will  depart from Vizag at 11 pm. NokAir, which is launching flight services from Guwahati to Bangkok three days a week  from  October 28, is contemplating launching the service four days a week from the city from October 28.
