SpiceJet Ltd, India’s most preferred low cost airline, adds two more destinations from India’s financial capital Mumbai by connecting it with Karnataka’s developing industrial hub, Hubli and with the holy city of Nanded.
Booking of tickets for these destinations are open now and commercial flights from Mumbai to Nanded commences today from February 14, 2013 while the flight from Mumbai to Hubli will begin from February 15, 2013.
SpiceJet plans to operate both these flights on alternative days. The hilly city of Hubli is an important tourist destination and a commercial hub in Karnataka whereas Nanded is well-known for being home to the famous Sachkhand Gurudwara, visited by pilgrims from across the world.

The Bombardier Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft can accommodate 78 passengers and is widely accepted as the best short-haul aircraft globally.
“In our endeavor to connect more and more tier-II and tier-III destinations, we are pleased to connect Mumbai with Nanded and Hubli, as we see tremendous growth potential in these cities. This is a step forward towards our commitment for offering best services at affordable fare. SpiceJet now connects to 44 domestic destinations while it connects 7 international destinations. ” SpiceJet Chief Executive Officer Neil Mills said.
