The flight and cabin crew of IndiGo’s inaugural flight to Dehradun (from Delhi) pose in front of the airport’s modern terminal, which was opened in 2009. Last year passenger numbers at the airport grew by 16.4% to 428,436.
- IndiGo on 1 March extended its domestic footprint by adding Dehradun (DED) to its network. On that day, the LCC began thrice-daily non-stop flights on the short 208-kilometre route from Delhi (DEL) using its A320s. The route is already served by Jet Airways (20 weekly flights), SpiceJet (13 weekly flights) and Alliance Air (12 weekly flights). IndiGo now serves 32 destinations with non-stop service from Delhi, of which only two are outside of India (Dubai and Kathmandu). Overall, Dehradun becomes the 40th airport served by India’s largest domestic airline. Find out how Dehradun Airport’s FTWA does in this week’s Arch of Triumph competition.
