Bagdogra Flights Set To Pull Out From Kolkata


Kolkata: Jet Airways is set to pull out daily direct services on the Kolkata-Port Blair and Kolkata-Bagdogra routes from March-end, a top Airports Authority of India (AAI) official on Sunday said.

“Jet Airways has informed us that with effect from March 25, they are withdrawing Bagdogra and Port Blair flights from Kolkata,” the official, who did not wish to be named, told PTI.

Indigo, Spicejet, Vistara, Go Air and Air India, among others, currently operate flights on the Kolkata-Bagdogra and Kolkata-Port Blair routes.

Jet Airways has been operating flights on the routes for around five years. An e-mailed query sent to the carrier did not elicit any response.

Jet Airways has connectivity to Port Blair with two stop-over flights that take between 19 and 47 hours against a maximum of a little over two hours for a direct flight.
