Having recently announced the first international flight service ever from Bhubaneswar, Indian low-cost carrier IndiGo will now add to further services to Singapore and Bangkok.
This month, IndiGo will become the first Indian airline to operate an international service from Bhubaneswar. The maiden international flight from Bhubaneswar to Dubai will take off from Biju Patnaik International Airport on May 15, 2023.
Following on from this first international service IndiGo has now announced two further scheduled services that will take off starting June 3, 2023, connecting the culturally rich city of Bhubaneswar to two of Asia’s most exciting destinations – Singapore and Bangkok.
These additional international routes will not only improve connectivity but also enhance accessibility for passengers flying to and from Bhubaneswar.
The flights were officially opened for booking by India’s Honorable Chief Minister, Shri Naveen Patnaik.
Tourism and trade links
the benefits of the international connections to and from Bhubaneswar present opportunities from both the business and private tourism point of view.
