Budget airline SpiceJet has announced intentions to start flights from India’s North East region to Bangladesh and Myanmar by the end of June in an effort to improve its global connections.
The airline also plans to restart four grounded aircraft, including two Boeing 737 aircraft, by June 15. SpiceJet, which celebrated its 18th anniversary on May 23, launched a “restructuring exercise” to lessen its financial burden and reduce liabilities.
Two international UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Naagrik) flights will be launched by the end of the next month on the Agartala-Chattogram-Agartala (India-Bangladesh) and Imphal-Mandalay-Imphal (India-Myanmar) routes.
The airline also intends to relaunch UDAN flights from Jammu to Gwalior and from Kolkata to Gwalior to Jammu. It would also introduce a new UDAN service on the Kolkata-Tezpur-Kolkata sector. In addition, SpiceJet would restore flights on the Kolkata-Chattogram-Kolkata sector and start new ones on the Kolkata-Agartala-Kolkata and Kolkata-Imphal-Kolkata sectors, the company announced.
SpiceJet has started a special deal with domestic one-way flights starting at Rs 1,818 on a few routes to celebrate the airline’s 18th anniversary. Bookings reserved between May 23 and May 28 for travel between July 1 and March 30, 2024, will be eligible for the promotion.
