Indigo to launch flights to Bareilly from Mumbai and Bengaluru

IH Aviation and Travel had in March reported that Indigo will start flights to Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh soon. Flights were set to launch on 29th April 2021. But like other airlines, Indigo had to pull back capacity and trim flight schedules due to the brutal second wave of COVID-19. As a result, the airline did not go ahead with its plans to launch flights to Bareilly. However, now as we are slowing emerging back from the second wave, things are improving. Indigo has today once again announced that it is launching flights to Bareilly from two Indian metro cities.

Identified in the Prime Minister’s ambitious 100 smart city plan, Bareilly has a huge potential for setting up industries in the city. This vision will be amply supported by enhanced connectivity, thereby promoting tourism, trade, and commerce in the region. Bareilly, also known as the ‘Nath Nagri’, is one of the sacred cities of Uttar Pradesh, due to its seven shiva temples attracting domestic as well as international tourists. In addition, holiday travellers will be able to get to the foothills of Nainital, Ranikhet, and Kumaon region from Mumbai and Bengaluru.
