On December 8, IndiGo announced that it will be adding 12 new flights to its schedule per day, for a total of 168 new weekly flights departing from the New Goa International Airport in Mopa, North Goa.
This will be the budget carrier’s largest new station launch yet and will connect to cities all around the nation. On December 11th, Prime Minister Modi will open the state’s second international airport in North Goa. The airport will become operational on January 5th, 2023.
168 weekly flights will operate and connect popular cities such as Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Jaipur.
The airline said that the new flights are being introduced to meet the growing demand, and will provide direct connectivity to North Goa. According to the airline, IndiGo will continue its current operations at Dabolim airport in South Goa.
Pieter Elbers, Chief Executive Officer of IndiGo, said on the occasion-
“We are very excited to announce our largest ever new station launch with new direct connections from the New Goa International Airport in Mopa, North Goa. It’s momentous for us at IndiGo to have such a massive opening and it speaks of our ambition and ability to provide connectivity to our customers and the nation in the best possible way.”
Besides accommodating tourists, the new services will also be useful for residents of Goa who want to fly directly to big cities in India, the company added.
The most popular airport among tourists in India is the New Goa International Airport located in North Goa. Tourists are attracted to the state for its natural scenery, beautiful beaches, stunning forts, and vibrant nightlife scene.
The Basilica of Bom Jesus, Immaculate Conception Church, Aguada Fort, Chapora Fort, Anjuna Beach, Sinquerim Beach, Harvalem waterfalls, Calangute Beach, Morjim, Club Titos, Candolim Beach Goa Safari Adventure, Club Cubana, and Café Mambos are some of the most widely known attractions that tourists visit from both inside and outside of the country.
With the goal of skyrocketing aviation safety and efficiency, it launched a digital e-logbook for its pilots. The airline became the first in the Indian aviation sector to launch such a logbook, facilitating the easy transfer of pilots’ flight data directly to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the country’s aviation regulator.
eGCA, the e-Governance of Civil Aviation platform, is an online tool that streamlines various digital processes under DGCA. The logbook process will be automated, and the regulator will get real-time details about flight operations as they’re happening.
IndiGo’s new flight services are expected to help boost tourism and business travel in the state. With its latest move, it is further expanding its presence in India, ensuring that more and more people can travel across the country.
Let’s cheer for this new flight launch from IndiGo and for the new Goa International Airport! This will be a great addition to India’s aviation sector.
