New SpiceJet Kolkata-Dhaka flight to operate from May 16
Kolkata : Low-cost carrier SpiceJet on Friday said it would launch its second daily direct flight on the Kolkata-Dhaka route from May 16.
The airline, which now operates to seven international destinations, is the only low-cost carrier to operate flights on the Kolkata-Dhaka sector.
Bookings for the new flight starting from May 16 are currently open.
"The overwhelming response of our customers to our first flight on the Kolkata-Dhaka route is what encouraged us to launch our second flight on the sector in such a short period. We will eye new markets and boost connectivity while discreetly gauging customer demand," said airline's Senior Vice President Commercial, Shilpa Bhatia.
Dhaka is the second international destination after Bangkok that the airline will be serving with a daily direct flight from Kolkata.
