Visakhapatnam airport accounts for 1/4th of total footfalls in Southern Region

Visakhapatnam: Visakhapatnam International Airport on Saturday recorded one fourth of passenger footfalls in the Southern Region. The airport recorded 6,004 footfalls on Saturday, the highest since lockdown in a single day. 

Airport Director Raj Kishore said the total footfalls in all airports of the Airports Authority of India (AAI) put together in the Southern Region is about 26,200, while Vizag alone recorded almost one fourth of the passenger traffic. The airport, which began operations with five arrivals and five departures after resumption of air services post lockdown, is now witnessing 42 flight movements. 

While 3,109 passengers arrived at the airport, 2,895 departed from it. It is a positive sign that the passenger traffic is aggressive in Vizag. Going by the present strength, it looks like the pre-lockdown traffic will be reached even before March, he said.

Meanwhile, SpiceJet has announced a new flight from Visakhapatnam to Hyderabad from December 25. The daily flight will depart from Hyderabad at 10.30 am and arrive in Vizag at 12.30 pm. In the return direction, it will leave Vizag at 1 pm and land in Hyderabad at 2 pm.
