No-frills carrier SpiceJet on Friday announced that it will operate six flights between Nashik in Maharashtra And Delhi, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad from this month.
Flights between Hyderabad and Nashik & Bengaluru and Nashik sectors will start from November 20, while flights on the Delhi-Nashik route will begin from November 25, the airline said in a statement.
The airline will operate flights on the Hyderabad-Nashik route under the govt of India’s regional connectivity scheme Udan.
Under the scheme, financial incentives from the Centre, state governments, and airport operators are extended to select airlines to encourage operations from unserved and underserved airports and keep airfares affordable.
Apart from the six flights connecting Nashik, SpiceJet has also announced 12 other flights, some of which are on the Bengaluru-Kolkata, Jaipur-Chennai, Mumbai-Udaipur, Ahmedabad-Udaipur, and Delhi-Udaipur routes.
“Udaipur and Jaipur are two popular tourist destinations that see significant demand during the winters and I am sure our new flights to these cities will delight leisure and business travelers alike,” SpiceJet chief commercial officer Shilpa Bhatia said.
The Civil Aviation Ministry had said last week that the Indian airlines could operate a maximum of 60 percent of their pre-COVID domestic passenger flights till February 24 due to the prevailing coronavirus situation.
