GHIAL launches maiden connection from Hyderabad to Kanpur

Hyderabad: IndiGo’s maiden direct flight service from Hyderabad to Kanpur was launched here on Monday from GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHIAL).

The inaugural IndiGo flight took off from Hyderabad to Kanpur at 1200 hours, GHIAL said in a release here. The daily IndiGo Flight 6E 269 will depart from GMR Hyderabad International Airport at 1200 hours and in return, IndiGo Flight 6E 102 from Kanpur will arrive in Hyderabad at 1635 hours. Flights will operate between GHIA and Kanpur six times a week – Monday to Saturday. With an ease in Covid restrictions, the demand for air travel is gradually picking up across sectors.

GHIAL CEO Pradeep Panicker said, our focus has also been on connecting Tier 2 cities across the nation. The gradually increasing passenger footfalls and resumption of many connections are an indication that the Indian Aviation industry is heading towards a bounce back.

Hyderabad Airport saw an increase in the number of flights across domestic sectors. The airport recorded a substantial rise in Air Traffic Movements (ATMs) in September which was close to 9000. On October 17, GHIAL recorded the highest domestic and international passenger footfall that crossed 50 thousand which is 81 per cent of the pre Covid numbers.
