Following a prolonged lull due to the Coronavirus pandemic, air connectivity from Indore to Ahmedabad, Belgaum, and Kishangarh recommenced on Tuesday. While TruJet has resumed its seven-day non-stop trip among Indore and Ahmedabad, Star Air has started two non-stop trips to Belgaum and Kishangarh. Star Air will also fly from Indore to Belgaum and Kishangarh on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
However, Air Asia has cut down the frequency of its Indore-Bengaluru departures from all-week to three days per week – Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The decline in the number of flyers on this route is said to be the reason behind the decision.
Indore now has 16 daily flights, but when the domestic operations began on May 25, there were four flights. Interestingly, there are still no direct flights from Indore to Mumbai, which happens to be one of the busiest routes.
According to Indore Airport Director Aryama Sanyal, four airlines are operating flights on six routes under a special schedule issued by DGCA. She said that people can expect more flights to cities like Mumbai in the coming days.
