SpiceJet is continuing to expand its operations to Dubai with the launch of new direct flights from Jaipur and extra services from Hyderabad.
The new services will commence on 16 February 2016, with flights from Jaipur running five times a week, and two additional weekly flights being added to the Hyderabad route, taking the total frequency to daily. Both routes will be operated using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
Following these launches, SpiceJet will offer direct connections to Dubai from 10 Indian cities.
“We see huge potential, especially from non-metro cities such as Jaipur, waiting to be unlocked,” said Shilpa Bhatia, SpiceJet’s senior vice president of commercial.
“Over the years we have also witnessed resurgence in demand on the Hyderabad-Dubai route from business and leisure travellers alike. Dubai is a key market in increasing our footprint across the Middle East and with these flight launches we aim to provide our customers with better and more convenient travel options.”
The Jaipur-Dubai flights will depart the Rajasthan city every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 1015, arriving in Dubai at 1230. The return flights will then leave Dubai at 0400, arriving back in Jaipur at 0830.
SpiceJet’s Hyderabad flights will depart daily at 0010 and arrive in Dubai at 0300. The return flights will then leave at either 1300 or 0400 depending on the day of the week, arriving back into Hyderabad at 1830 or 0900.
