India’s budget carrier GoAir will operate an evening flight between Delhi and Srinagar.
Operations begin June 15 onwards, making GoAir the only airline to service Srinagar in the evenings.
This is in tandem with the requirement of a late evening flight by trade agencies and leisure travellers.
“Effective June 15, the GoAir flight G8 229 will take off from Delhi at 1650 and arrive in Srinagar at 1810 while the return flight G8 228 will take off from Srinagar at 1840 and arrive Delhi at 2005,” says the airline’s press release.
“Srinagar has been a focus city for GoAir since long and it has always served the valley with first arrival and last departure flights for the last three summer seasons. With this new flight, GoAir will now serve Srinagar to Delhi six times non-stop,” says Wolfgang Prock- Schauer, GoAir’s CEO.
Currently, GoAir operates over 975 weekly flights across 23 destinations.
