The capacity of flights operating from Durgapur airport is set to increase by 200 times when SpiceJet introduces daily flights to Mumbai and Chennai this summer. While Air India currently operates flights to Delhi and Hyderabad, they are thrice-a-week operations. Moreover, the aircraft that SpiceJet plans to use has 30% more capacity.
SpiceJet will operate the 189-seater Boeing B737-800 aircraft on both flights connecting Andal under the central government’s regional connectivity scheme Udan, said airline associate vice-president (regulatory and government affairs) Debashis Saha in Asansol on Monday. While the airline was earlier expected to operate the 90-seater Bombardier Q400 plane on the routes connecting Durgapur, it has now decided to operate a larger aircraft as it believes the industrial belt of Durgapur-Asansol-Burnpur-Raniganj-Kulti has potential to attract more flyers.
This route is expected to ease travel for those who have to go for checkups or have to travel frequently.
The final date of starting of this flight is still not finalized. It is expected to start soon.
