Kolkata: SpiceJet has introduced six new flights strengthening its network across domestic and international routes. The airline has introduced a second non-stop flight on the Kolkata-Bangkok-Kolkata sector besides enhancing frequencies on the domestic sectors of Kolkata-Chennai and Chennai-Shirdi.

The airline will now connect Kolkata and Shirdi with a direct flight via Chennai. On Friday SpiceJet Chief Marketing Officer Debojo Maharshi said, "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."

 

He added, "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. We are confident that the enhanced frequencies will offer better connectivity and flexibility to every traveller."
