SpiceJet connects Kushinagar to India's aviation network

SpiceJet has added Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh to its domestic atlas. From next month, the airline will connect the newest UDAN destination with Delhi, with a starting fare of Rs 3,662.

The airline will be connecting Kushinagar with two more metros – Mumbai and Kolkata – from December 18. SpiceJet will fly its Boeing 737 and Q400 aircraft on these routes, it said.

Kushinagar, known as the iconic city where Lord Buddha attained his Mahaparinirvana, is a major tourist spot and attracts Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 20 launched India’s 29th international and Uttar Pradesh's third international airport in Kushinagar in presence of Sri Lankan Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa’s son and a 125-member delegation.

"I extend my heartiest congratulations to the historic city of Kushinagar and its residents for having their own international airport for seamless domestic and international connectivity," Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet, said.
