SpiceJet opens five new air routes in UP, Quits Tripura : Flight-fares flying up

AGARTALA, Sep 12 (TIWN): An agreement was signed between the Uttar Pradesh government and private air carrier Spice Jet on Wednesday to fly on five new routes in the state, whereas the same BJP Govt led by Chief Minister Biplab Deb failed to hold Spice Jet service, affecting at least 27 people who lost their earnings due to the company's departure.

At UP the new routes on which flights will begin after clearances from the Union Civil Aviation Ministry and the UP government are Varanasi-Kolkata, Varanasi-Bengaluru, Kanpur-Mumbai, Kanpur-Bengaluru and Gorakhpur-Bengaluru.

Speaking at the event to announce the operationalization of the new routes, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath thanked the Spice Jet management for their expansion in the state and said that under the initiative of 'Udaan' mooted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, air connectivity in small towns and cities had got a big boost and the five new routes in the state would go a long way in providing facilities to the people and also developing these areas.

Under the agreement, discounts would be provided to SC/ST travellers and others as per provisions of the state government, the Chief Minister underlined. On the other side being suffering by lack of business, SpiceJet authority has decided to take off the last flight from Agartala Airport in the long run.
