IndiGo, India’s leading low-cost carrier and largest airline, has announced its new domestic exclusive connectivity between the heritage and culturally rich city of Nawabs, Lucknow, and the spiritual heart of the nation, Varanasi. The new service is to commence as of 10th August 2023. 

Mobility boosted

This new route pairing will enhance the capacity and domestic mobility in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The increased demand for air travel contributes to the economic and societal development of the state alone.

These demands are usually driven by business, leisure, and interestingly, spiritual leisure. The low-cost carrier will seamlessly provide customers with two of the most visited places in the state.

This new route is slated to be flown as a daily frequency in the winter schedule. 

Head of Global Sales at IndiGo, Mr. Vinay Malhotra stated with positivity: “We are thrilled to unveil new flight connections linking the culturally and historically rich cities of Uttar Pradesh: Lucknow and Varanasi.”

“Two of the most densely populated cities in North India, they also attract a significant number of tourists from within the country and overseas. Over the past few months, we have witnessed a growing demand for air connectivity within as well as to/from Uttar Pradesh.”


“As India’s preferred carrier, it is our ambition to meet this demand and facilitate seamless travel experiences between Varanasi, Lucknow, and other destinations through our extensive network of domestic destinations.”

“We will continue to enhance domestic connectivity and remain committed to our promise of providing on-time, affordable, courteous, and hassle-free travel experience to our customers across our wide network.”

Good news for Lucknow and Varanasi

This is good news for the cities of Lucknow and Varanasi as both are tapped for a rapid increase in tourist and business traffic, due to the increase in flight capacities. 

Apart from the cities being connected by air, Lucknow, and Varanasi are also focused on enhancing ground transportation.

This includes the development of railways, airways, and greenfield expressways to pave the way for the rising demands for travel options and improved ground mobility. This makes iconic attractions like the Ganga Aarti and Kashi Vishwanath Temple draw visitors. 

The city of Nawabs is the capital of Uttar Pradesh, and has various historical and architectural sites worth visiting. The city is also well known for its culture, cuisine, art, and development over the years.

Lucknow has been tapped as the state’s most-watched city as it has experienced incredible growth over the years.

Lucknow’s tourist attractions include Bara Imambara, Chota Imambara, Rumi Darwaza, the Residency, Chowk, Ambedkar Memorial Park, Nawab Wajid Ali Shah Zoological Park, Gomti Riverfront Park, Husainabad Clock Tower, Dilkusha Kothi Palace, and much more.
