More domestic flights to resume operations

Coimbatore: Despite SpiceJet stopping all flights to and from the city, Coimbatorians can expect an exciting flight schedule ahead.GoAir is continuing flights from Mumbai and Indigo is planning to operate 19 flights from the city to various destinations in the country.

While Chennai, being the most popular destination, may get six flights, Hyderabad may get four and New Delhi two, giving frequent fliers more flexibility and the possibility of cheaper fares. Three of the 19 flights will be base flights.

The schedule, of which TOI has a copy, includes six flights to Chennai, three to Bengaluru, two to Mumbai, four to Hyderabad and one to Pune. The two flights, in addition to GoAir’s flight, gives frequent fliers to the commercial capital three options. The schedule comes into force from March 28.

“These are proposed flights, but are pending final approval,” said an IndiGo spokesperson.

With the school holiday season beginning on April 1 and the Covid-19 vaccine reaching old and the vulnerable people, families are excited about the schedule. “The increase in number of flights to Chennai definitely improve our options of flying to Jaipur and Jodhpur,” said Kanya Jain, who is planning a Rajasthan trip with her family in May.

“We can also look at convenient and quick options to Kashmir via New Delhi and Goa via Chennai or Bangalore,” said Krishna Alwar, a software professional, who hopes for cheap and convenient flights this summer.
