SpiceJet continues expansion in Bangalore
- SpiceJet further grew its route offering from Bangalore (BLR), India’s IT hub located in the state of Karnataka, on 27 September. The airline now offers six weekly flights to Coimbatore (CJB) in the north-west of the southern Indian state of Tamil Nandu, an agglomeration of two million people. Competition on this route comes from Jet Airways and JetLite, which offer daily flights each. In addition, SpiceJet commenced daily flights to Hubli (HBX), which is located only 520 kilometres away from Bangalore, also in Karnataka. Both routes are operated with Q400s and come as part of SpiceJet’s expansion in Bangalore, which earlier this year saw the launch of routes to Ahmedabad and Kochi.
