New routes spice up Italy’s network
SpiceJet, India’s third largest airline by passengers carried, launched two new direct services to Italy in November.
The low-cost carrier flies twice a week to Rome and three times a week to Milan Bergamo from Amritsar Airport.
Home of the famous Golden Temple, Amritsar is a gateway to the Punjab region, where travellers can discover historical towns, abandoned forts and bustling bazaars.
Debashis Saha, vice president and delegated accountable manager of SpiceJet, said: “It is a remarkable moment to start the schedule services between India and Italy. As of today, we are only carrier to start this service. This will bring cheer to passengers and also develop trade and commerce.”
SpiceJet has further plans to boost connectivity between India and Europe. “In the coming months, SpiceJet will also start schedule services to other European destinations,” announced Saha.
SpiceJet operated its first flight in 2005 and has grown to be India’s second largest carrier. The airline flies to more than 60 destinations, mostly in India, with a burgeoning international network.
