Spicejet has announced the addition of Darbhanga (situated in the state of Bihar) to its network.
Daily flights connecting Darbhanga with key metros of Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. Darbhanga would be launched, November 8 onwards.
Darbhanga will be the airline’s 13th destination under the Government of India’s Regional Connectivity Scheme and 55th destination on the airline’s domestic network. It was bagged by Spicejet under the UDAN II scheme.
The low-cost carrier will deploy its Boeing 737-800 on these routes. The airline is offering all-inclusive introductory one-way promotional fare starting at ₹3,799 on all the routes.
“Providing air connectivity to the smaller towns of India has always been a top priority for Spicejet and our latest addition couldn’t have come at a more opportune time for Bihar when thousands travel back home for Diwali and Chhath Puja. Our Government has been making all possible efforts to connect the unconnected parts of India through UDAN and the development of Darbhanga airport is another major step towards this direction,” says Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, Spicejet.
The launch of these new flights will add more flexibility and convenience to both tourists and business travelers from Darbhanga and nearby areas who at present have to travel for hours all the way to Patna to avail flights to key metros.
Spicejet’s UDAN network includes Delhi-Kishangarh-Delhi, Mumbai-Porbandar, Mumbai-Kandla-Mumbai, Hyderabad-Puducherry-Hyderabad, Jaipur-Jaisalmer-Jaipur, Delhi-Adampur-Delhi, Ahmedabad-Jaisalmer-Ahmedabad, Surat-Jaisalmer-Surat and Delhi-Kanpur-Delhi amongst others.
