SpiceJet has flagged-off its first daily direct flight services to Dhaka from Kolkata, making it the seventh international destination for the low-cost carrier. This will help the carrier to increase connectivity between Bangladesh and India. Travellers coming for medical and business purposes will also benefit from this new flight.
The company will also look at providing onward connections to Bangkok, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai, Guwahati, Bagdogra, Aizawl and Silchar via Kolkata to Dhaka. The company’s other international destinations include Dubai, Bangkok, Colombo, Kabul, Male (Maldives), and Muscat.
SpiceJet was among the first private companies that stepped into the Indian aviation sector. It operates more than 340 daily flights to 45 destinations, including 6 international ones.
