India’s largest carrier, IndiGo has added another destination to its international portfolio, Chengdu, China. This will be the first non-stop service between Chengdu and India.
Mr William Boulter, chief commercial officer for Indigo said, “This is truly a milestone moment for all of us at IndiGo. India is witnessing a much higher growth rate with respect to aviation and currently the India-China route is underserved by Indian carriers. With our plan to operate non-stop daily flights to Chengdu we are providing the much-needed connectivity between the two destinations. China is a market with immense potential and holds prominent trade, cultural and tourism values. We hope to further strengthen this relation by announcing our entry into China.”
There new routes are designed to cater for business and leisure travellers who are seeking affordable flying options between the two nations. The first scheduled flights will take place on 15 September (Delhi to Chengdu), and 16 September (Chengdu to Delhi).
