SpiceJet has announced that it will launch flights between Delhi and Porbandar. The airline will also launch new flights from Mumbai and Ahmedabad.

Starting 27th April 2022, SpiceJet will operate 4-flights-a-week between Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport and Porbandar Airport. The flights will run with the following schedule:

  • Delhi-Porbandar
  • Departure time: 14:00
  • Arrival time: 16:25
  • Flight time: 2 hours and 25 minutes
  • Flight number: SG3725

SpiceJet presently operates daily flights between Mumbai and Porbandar. In the past, Porbandar was connected to Ahmedabad by TruJet, but due to financial problems of the airline, it has suspended the route. So now, Porbandar is a monopoly station of SpiceJet with flights to two of India’s biggest cities.
