Spicejet announced on Monday six new flights connecting Darbhanga with Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru starting November 8, 2020. The new daily flights will be the carrier’s 13th destination under the Government of India’s UDAN II Regional Connectivity Scheme.
On Monday (September 21, 2020), SpiceJet announced that they will become the first and only carrier to connect Darbhanga to Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. The six daily flights will commence on November 8, 2020 as part of the Government of India’s UDAN II Regional Connectivity Scheme. Service on the new routes will be operated with a Boeing 737-800 and to celebrate the new connectivity, SpiceJet is offering introductory one-way promotional fares starting at Rs. 3,799 (USD $51.67). In Monday’s announcement, SpiceJet’s Chairman & Managing Director, Ajay Singh, said,
“I am delighted to announce the launch of our much awaited flight services to and from Darbhanga putting this key city on the country’s aviation map and making the upcoming festival season all the more special. Our new daily flights from Darbhanga from November 8 will connect the city with key metros of Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru and further provide easy connections throughout our domestic and international network.
“As the country’s largest regional operator, providing air connectivity to the smaller towns of India has always been a top priority for SpiceJet and our latest addition couldn’t have come at a more opportune time for Bihar when thousands travel back home for Diwali and Chhath Puja. Darbhanga is a critical junction for the State which connects a large part of North Bihar with the rest of India and we are thrilled to be the first Indian airline to land at this key airport. Our Government has been making all possible efforts to connect the unconnected parts of India through UDAN and the development of Darbhanga airport is another major step towards this direction.”
The new flights will offer business and leisure travelers from Darbhanga with new convenience, as presently passengers must travel several hours to Patna to board a flight to the key metro areas. SpiceJet customers will now be able to seamlessly connect to numerous other domestic and international destinations. Darbhanga is the fifth largest city in the Eastern Indian State of Bihar and the airport serves districts in the Mithila Region including Muzaffarpur, Madhubani, Samastipur, Sitamarhi, Champaran, Saharsa, Purnea and Mithila region of Nepal including Janakpur, Biratnagar, Saptari, Mahottari, among others.
