13 June 2017 | New Delhi


The airline said in a release, SpiceJet on Monday announced the launch of two flights from July 10 under the UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik) scheme.

The two flights will connect Mumbai to Porbandar and Kandla in Gujarat.

Ajay Singh, chairman, SpiceJet said in a statement, “I am delighted that SpiceJet is helping realise Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of ensuring that every Indian can fly. UDAN is a grand scheme and we are proud to be amongst the pacesetters for the scheme.”

It has been our constant endeavour to enable the common man to fly since we began operations 12 years back. We will connect many more small towns and cities in times to come,” Singh, was quoted in the release.

The release added that the airline will operate flights on the Mumbai-Porbandar route with reserved seats fetching INR 2,250 while the the Mumbai-Kandla and Kandla-Mumbai routes would be INR 2,500 (all inclusive) for Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) seats.

SpiceJet, which is the only airline which hasn’t sought subsidy or viability gap funding under this scheme, was awarded six proposals and eleven routes under the first phase of the RCS. Out of the six proposals, four will cater to unserved markets of Adampur, Kandla, Puducherry and Jaisalmer whereas two will be for underserved markets of Porbandar and Kanpur.
