According to sources from Puducherry with the success of the Pondicherry-Hyderabad flights launched by SpiceJet in August 2017, the airport is all set to get more flights, thanks to Centre’s UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik) scheme. According to latest report the daily flight will take off from Bengaluru at 9.40 am and land here at 10.30 am.
Meanwhile the return flight, SG 3420, will take off from here at 10.50 am and land in Bengaluru at 12.10 pm. Presently according to sources the Spicejet had launched its service in 2013 with direct flights connecting Puducherry and Bengaluru, but stopped its operation after about a year. Puducherry is one of the four un-served markets the airline started operating to under the UDAN scheme.
A senior official from tourism department said “Puducherry is one of the
most sought after tourist destinations in the country. Meanwhile the
introduction of flight service is definitely a boost to the tourist sector as
the journey became more convenient for the visitors. The Union Territory is
also a hub of education, healthcare and home to several big IT software and
hardware giants and furthermore the flight service introduction will add
further to the growth of the state".
