SpiceJet has flagged off a daily direct flight on the Durgapur-Mumbai route under the regional connectivity scheme UDAN. The under- served market of Durgapur is the airline’s 13th destination under UDAN.
The new flight reiterates the airlines commitment to augment connectivity between metro and non-metro cities. This route is awarded under UDAN-III and is exclusive to the airline, thereby making it the only carrier to offer flight services on the sector.
SpiceJet is among the first private companies that stepped into the Indian aviation sector.
