IndiGo began daily non-stop flights on 17 March between Kolkata (CCU) and Goa (GOI), the popular tourism destination on India’s west coast. The 1,733-kilometre service will be operated by the airline’s 180-seat A320s. This becomes the airline’s 20th route from Kolkata and the carrier’s sixth route to Goa. IndiGo already serves Goa from Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai. IndiGo becomes the first carrier to link Kolkata and Goa with non-stop flights, though Jet Airways and SpiceJet both offer one-stop flights via Mumbai. Last year, Goa International Airport handled just over 4.5 million passengers (up 13.2%) making it India’s ninth busiest airport.
