Indian budget airline SpiceJet will be beginning flights between Thiruvananthapuram, India and Velana International Airport in Maldives. The new flights will be operated daily between the two countries beginning from 10th May 2017 on a 78-seat Bombardia-Q400 aircraft, with a special introductory fare.
SpiceJet already operates daily flights from Maldives to Cochin, India. SpiceJet also offers International Charter Services, and although the airline started out as a domestic low-budget airline within India, it has now expanded to 7 international destinations with Bangladesh the latest country under their belt.
During the launching of their latest international destination, Mr. Ajay Singh – CMD, SpiceJet Ltd. said “We believe that international markets have a huge potential and hence expanding our global footprint has always been a prerogative. With our much awaited mega Boeing deal finally concluded the time is now ripe for SpiceJet to eye new markets and boost connectivity. As we work towards placing more aircraft into our fleet; we will aggressively look at newer and enhanced connections in both the regional and international markets.”
