Surat skies to witness traffic once again

Surat: High flying Surtis can cheer once again as air traffic at Surat airport is going to soar once.

Private flight operators will connect the Diamond City with various major economic and tourist hubs of the country. While Indigo has planned new destinations from July 23, SpiceJet will be starting flights on new sectors from Friday.

Surat will be connected with Pune for the first time as SpiceJet plans to start a morning flight four days a week. Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh will be another new destination with three flights from Surat in a week. Besides these two new sectors, SpiceJet will operate flights to Kolkata via Patna, Jaipur, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

Indigo, on the other hand, will start a daily flight to Hyderabad and flights to Goa, Chennai and Bengaluru thrice a week, official sources in the airport said.

Several flights to and from Surat were suspended as the second wave of pandemic wreaked havoc in the country. The daily passenger footfall, which reached 4,000 in a day in March, had dropped significantly, but is currently seeing a steady rise.
