IndiGo launches Delhi to Leh, the fifth carrier in the market

This year, IndiGo has 57 destinations from Delhi, of which 50 are domestic.  Leh, which started on 22 February, is its 11th shortest route.

IndiGo began Delhi to Leh, in the very mountainous Ladakh, on 22 February.

It operates the 614-kilometre service seven-weekly and has four direct competitors.

In the week starting 12 April, for example, it’ll compete directly with GoAir (28 weekly), SpiceJet (14), Air India (seven), and Vistara (seven).  These serves are all bookable, their websites show.

Delhi – Leh will have 63 weekly departures versus 23 in the same week in 2020 and 45 in pre-coronavirus 2019.

An overland bus from Delhi to Leh takes in the region of 35 hours versus roughly one hour by air.
