India’s favourite carrier SpiceJet launched a daily direct flight between Hyderabad and Shirdi. Hyderabad is the second destination which SpiceJet will connect directly with Shirdi. Earlier the airline had also launched a daily direct flight between Shirdi and Delhi.
Shilpa Bhatia, Chief Sales and Revenue Officer, SpiceJet said, “It gives me immense pleasure to announce the launch of the flight services between Shirdi and Hyderabad. The new flight will benefit thousands of tourists who frequently visit the city while giving a boost to the religious tourism prospects of Shirdi.”
Home to the famous temple dedicated to Shri SaiBaba, the Maharashtrian town of Shirdi receives an estimated 60,000 pilgrims every day. With the new flights launched, tourists who otherwise take a rail or road tour can conveniently switch to a more convenient and time sensitive travel mode.
Inaugurated by the Hon’ble President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, Shirdi received its first operational airport in October last year. With the introduction of daily direct flight service on the route, passengers from Shirdi can now conveniently travel to a host of other cities both on SpiceJet’s domestic as well as international network via multiple onward connections from Hyderabad.
Bookings are now open on www.spicejet.com, SpiceJet’s mobile app and through online travel portals and travel agents.
