flybig, India’s fast-growing regional airline, announced a significant boost in flight frequency between Bathinda, Ghaziabad, and Ludhiana.

This move comes in response to the rising demand for regional air travel and the need to enhance accessibility for passengers.

Previously offering two flights per week, flybig is now doubling that number to four. This expansion now provides passengers with greater flexibility when planning their travel, allowing them to choose the schedule that best suits their needs.

The capacity expansion targets the needs of both business and leisure travellers to the region.

Commitment to Regional Development

Flybig’s decision further supports Prime Minister Modi’s vision of fostering inclusive growth and economic empowerment across India.

By providing affordable regional connectivity, flybig empowers individuals and businesses in smaller cities.

This not only opens doors to new business opportunities but also allows residents of these regions to access essential services and cultural hubs in larger cities with greater ease.

flybig Chairman Comments

Sanjay Mandavia, Chairman and Managing Director of flybig, emphasizes the airline’s mission: “We aim to make regional air travel accessible and affordable for everyone, regardless of background. Affordable airfare has the power to be a catalyst for economic growth – a key aspect of ‘New India’s’ aspirations.”

Flybig offers competitive fares for the increased flights between Bathinda, Ghaziabad, and Ludhiana, with an average price of INR 999 (before taxes).

DHC-6 Flight Operations

Passengers will enjoy comfortable journeys aboard flybig’s DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft, each with a capacity of 19 seats.

These modern turboprop planes are known for their fuel efficiency and ability to take off and land on shorter runways, making them ideal for connecting smaller airports.

This enhanced connectivity caters to both leisure and business travelers. The recent extension of the INR 99 airfare scheme from Aligarh further strengthens flybig’s commitment to affordability.

Looking Ahead: Growth and Opportunity

Flybig anticipates significant passenger growth in the coming years and plans to expand its network accordingly. This expansion will not only benefit passengers but also create new job opportunities within the airline industry.

“As regional connectivity expands, we unlock doors for infrastructure development, tourism, and new markets,” says Mandavia.

“This holistic approach holds the promise of unleashing the potential of various regions, driving prosperity and inclusivity nationwide.”

Regional Benefits

Increased regional air connectivity offers far-reaching benefits. It fosters job creation, business expansion, and overall economic growth, facilitating the movement of people, goods, and services.

By making regional travel faster and more convenient, flybig is helping to bridge the gap between urban and rural India.
