The first SpiceJet service from Dubai to Madurai is welcomed on arrival in Madurai in the traditional manner. SpiceJet now serves Dubai non-stop from five airports in India. See if this welcome wins this week’s “Arch of Triumph”.

  • SpiceJet launched daily flights between Madurai (IXM) and Dubai (DXB) on 22 November. The 2,950-kilometre route will be operated by the airline’s 737-800s and will face no direct competition.

It is also SpiceJet’s fifth route to Dubai, following in the footsteps of Ahmedabad, Delhi, Kochi and Mumbai. In the year ending March 2013, Madurai Airport handled 558,500 passengers, of which only 30,000 were on international flights.
