IndiGo expands its presence in Mumbai with new routes and frequency increases

IndiGo, India’s largest and most successful airline, has announced that it is expanding its presence in Mumbai with new routes and frequency increases. The carrier says that it now operates more than 170 flights daily to/from Mumbai.

New and returning flights

As of 1st July 2023, IndiGo will fly daily between Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport and Durgapur’s Kazi Nazrul Islam Airport. This will be the second daily flight on the route, with the other operated by SpiceJet. The good thing here is that passengers will have two timing options, with IndiGo operating a morning flight and SpiceJet operating an afternoon flight.

On the same day, IndiGo will resume operations between Mumbai and Kannur, with a daily flight operating between the two cities.

IndiGo has introduced additional frequencies between Dehradun-Mumbai, Leh-Mumbai, Srinagar-Mumbai, Hyderabad-Mumbai, Jammu-Mumbai, Ranchi-Mumbai, Varanasi-Mumbai, Nagpur-Mumbai and Amritsar- Mumbai routes as of 3rd June 2023.

We are pleased to announce these frequency additions, which will further aid trade and commerce. India’s commercial capital, Mumbai, is also a popular tourist destination, offering a diverse selection of attractions and experiences. Increased accessibility will also support Maharashtra government’s vision to make Mumbai a tourist hub and spur job creation. We strongly believe that increased accessibility contributes to economic growth and will continue to offer more flight options to our customers across an unparalleled network.

IndiGo now operates 155 domestic flights and 20 international flights to and from Mumbai.
