SpiceJet inaugurates Delhi to Pakyong, Sikkim
SpiceJet began Delhi to Pakyong, in the Northeast state of Sikkim, on 23 January. It is the state’s only airport, with Sikkim bordering both Bhutan and China.
The 1,139-kilometre Delhi service operates once-daily using Dash-8-400s. Flightradar24 shows that it’s just over two hours’ flying time to Pakyong, and typically 2h 30m to 2h 50m back.
Pakyong opened in 2018 with SpiceJet its only carrier. In that first year, it operated from Kolkata via Guwahati.
