Low-cost carrier SpiceJet today said it would launch new daily flights from Amritsar to Bangkok in Thailand and Goa -- the only airline to offer direct connectivity on these routes.
The new flights will be effective from November 6, a press release from the airline said.
Bangkok is the second international destination after Dubai that SpiceJet will be connecting via a direct flight from Amritsar.
Bangkok is one of the most preferred international destinations for Indian tourists with record numbers of tourists visiting the Thai capital every year. Goa is also one of India’s favourite travel destinations.
Earlier passengers from Amritsar had to travel to Delhi to board flights for both the destinations. The new flights will enhance customer convenience manifold, the release said.
The announcement was made in the august presence of Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. On the occasion, Mr. Kamal Hingorani, Chief Customer Service Officer, SpiceJet handed over the first ticket to Capt. Amarinder Singh, thereby marking the formal announcement of the launch of the new flight service.
Shilpa Bhatia, Chief Sales and Revenue Officer, SpiceJet said, “Both Bangkok and Goa are among top picks for leisure travelers and we see immense potential in these routes. SpiceJet is proud to be the only Indian carrier to offer direct connectivity from Amritsar to Bangkok and Goa. We are constantly scaling up our network in both domestic and international markets and we will continue to eye new growth markets offering enhanced convenience for our customers.”
SpiceJet will deploy its Boeing aircraft on both the routes, the release added.
