India’s SpiceJet launches Dubai flights from Amritsar and Calicut

The low-cost carrier will begin operating the two routes from November 15

Indian low-cost carrier SpiceJet has announced that it will launch direct flights to Dubai from the cities of Amritsar and Calicut (Kozhikode) from November 15.

Bookings for tickets are open and the airline is offering an introductory fare of Rs 4999 one-way for both the routes, a statement said.

SpiceJet will operate daily flights on the Kozhikode – Dubai route, while flights on the Amritsar – Dubai route will operate on all days except Saturdays.

The airline said it would deploy its Boeing 737NG aircraft on the newly launched routes.

The move comes even as flight connections between India and Dubai have increased in recent years. India emerged as the top destination country for Dubai’s airport in August with over 855,550 passengers.

SpiceJet currently has direct flights to Dubai from six Indian cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Kochi, Madurai with connections from other cities such as Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

Dubai is one of the airline’s six international destinations – others include Bangkok, Colombo, Kabul, Male (Maldives) and Muscat.

Services to Kathmandu, which had been temporarily suspended, will resume in the future, the airline said.

Additional international destinations will be announced in the coming weeks, it added.

Earlier this year, Indian media reports had speculated that Qatar Airways and Dubai-based flydubai were eyeing stakes in the fast-growing carrier. However both the airlines rejected the claims.
