Bitten by travel bug? IndiGo launches direct Goa flight

Coimbatore: IndiGo has come forward to operate a direct flight to Goa, much to the delight of leisure travellers and travel agents here.

Presently, flights are operated to the tourist destination with layover in cities like Hyderabad.

The direct service, which will commence from October 31, will not only bring down travel hours, but also ticket cost. You can book tickets now.

While the journey takes three to four hours now, the new service will bring down travel time to one-and-a-half hours. The flight will depart from Coimbatore airport at 10.40pm and reach Goa at 12.05am. It will leave Goa at 12.35am and land here at 1.55am. The onward ticket is available on ticketing websites for Rs 3,300 and the return ticket for Rs 3,650.

With the festival season fast approaching, the flight is expected to garner good patronage from city folks and people in neighbouring districts.

“The timing is somewhat odd since as it is scheduled at midnight. I think it is due to the slot issues in Goa. Hope to see a day flight soon,” an aviation enthusiast told TOI.

“Goa is a favourite destination of people in the region. I am sure the flight will be a hit,” said Ashish Kanted of city-based Ashish Travels.
