SpiceJet to strengthen network in overseas, domestic sector

Chennai: Budget air-carrier SpiceJet will introduce a non-stop flight on the Kolkata-Bangkok sector and additional frequencies in the domestic sector.

The flights would operate daily and are effective from 25 September to 26 October, 2019 and from 5 November.

The airliner has introduced six new flights thereby strengthening its network across domestic and international routes. The airline will connect Kolkata and Shirdi with a direct flight via Chennai.

“We see tremendous potential in the Kolkata-Bangkok sector and our second non-stop flight on this route will offer tremendous boost to the city’s connectivity considering it will also connect passengers to and from other Indian cities to Bangkok via Kolkata,” SpiceJet Chief Marketing Officer Debojo Maharshi said in a statement.

“Our additional frequencies from Kolkata to Bangkok and Chennai have been perfectly timed to meet and support the travel plans during Durga Puja holidays and the upcoming festive season,” he said. SpiceJet said it would deploy Boeing 737-800 fleet on these routes.
