Kushinagar-Delhi SpiceJet flight to begin from Friday

Gorakhpur: The first domestic flight from Kushinagar International Airport for Delhi will start from Friday. The airport was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 20 and SpiceJet airlines will provide the air service.

Giving this information on Wednesday, airport director AK Dwivedi said, “From Friday, Kushinagar International Airport is becoming functional with the launch of the first flight between Kushinagar and Delhi by SpiceJet. From next month, flights for two more cities-for Kolkata from December 17 and for Mumbai from December 18, will start.”

Despite a rich cultural heritage of the place, Kushinagar was among the most backward places of Purvanchal. But after becoming the chief minister in 2017, Yogi Adityanath strengthened the infrastructure of the district and also provided it with an international airport for air connectivity and opened a new gateway of development of the entire area.

It is the third functional international airport of the state to have domestic flights. Kushinagar is the land of Lord Buddha and with the air connectivity of the place, there are chances that flights for Buddhist countries like Sri Lanka, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Singapore may start from here soon.

The flight to Delhi will be available four times a week — Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The flight will take off from Delhi at 12 and reach Kushinagar at 1.35 pm and from Kushinagar it will take off at 1.55 pm and land in Delhi at 3.55 pm.

From December 17, flights for Kolkata from Kushinagar will be operational for three days a week — Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On December 17, the flight will take off at 1.35pm from Kolkata and land in Kushinagar at 3.20pm and from Kushinagar it will take off at 3.40pm and land in Kolkata at 5.15pm.
