Puducherry to Bengaluru Spicejet flights from February 15

Puducherry: With the success of the Pondicherry-Hyderabad flights launched by SpiceJet in August 2017, the airport is all set to get more flights, thanks to Centre’s UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik) scheme.

SpiceJet has announced resumption of a service to Bengaluru from February 15 onwards.





The daily flight will take off from Bengaluru at 9.40 am and land here at 10.30 am.

The return flight, SG 3420, will take off from here at 10.50 am and land in Bengaluru at 12.10 pm.

Spicejet had launched its service in 2013 with direct flights connecting Puducherry and Bengaluru, but stopped its operation after about a year. Puducherry is one of the four un-served markets the airline started operating to under the UDAN scheme.

The daily flight service to Hyderabad introduced by SpiceJet in August last year is reportedly a huge success as the flight has almost 80 percentage occupancy during weekends. Air Odhisa is also getting approval to operate in the Chennai-Puducherry-Salem-Bengaluru sector, with which the airport would witness more services.

“Puducherry is one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the country. The introduction of flight service is definitely a boost to the tourist sector as the journey became more convenient for the visitors. The Union Territory is also a hub of education, healthcare and home to several big IT software and hardware giants. The flight service introduction will add further to the growth of the state,” said a senior official from tourism department.He also said the government had already conducted several rounds of talks with Tamil Nadu government to provide land for runway expansion.
