IndiGo has the best understanding of the market demand of any company. Its vast network offers easy connections, and occasionally its planes are the only ones that go between particular places.
From Thiruvananthapuram to Kolkata
The airline currently offers a one-stop service via Chennai connecting the South Indian city of Thiruvananthapuram with Kolkata in East India, greatly reducing travel time.
Thiruvananthapuram in the southern Indian state of Kerala is now connected to Kolkata by IndiGo through Chennai. The departure time for flight 6E6169 is 13:40, and the arrival time is 15:05 in Chennai. It stops there for 45 minutes before leaving for Kolkata at 15:50. It will arrive in Kolkata around 18:00 local time.
Before this, anyone traveling between the 2 cities had to fly for more than seven hours on average, but this has now been reduced to four and a half hours. With demand in this sector seemingly strong, a direct flight service in the future could not be ruled out as well.
IndiGo is a leading company in spotting demand gaps and launching flights to fill them. As a result of the high levels of travel demand in the area from both pleasure and business travelers, it launched the first-ever direct flight service between Kolhapur and Bengaluru earlier this month. The airline believes that adding this new route, will both expand passenger options and benefit the city’s tourism sector.
Additionally, it will launch a brand-new, unique flight on February 2 between Jaipur (JAI) and Jodhpur (JDH), cutting the previously 4-6-hour car trip down to only one hour. There aren’t any other commercial airlines flying this route right now, therefore IndiGo will fly one of its ATR aircraft there.
IndiGo has added 16 more flights to accommodate rising demand before India’s Republic Day. A majority of non-trunk lines, such as Bengaluru-Ahmedabad, Chennai-Ahmedabad, Bengaluru-North Goa, Mumbai-Rajkot, Raipur-Mumbai, Kolkata-Guwahati, Guwahati-Agartala, and Port-Blair-Chennai, would continue to have the extra capacity until January 26th.
To increase capacity, Qatar Airways recently decided to fly one of its Dreamliners to the city twice weekly. It also offers direct flights to important Middle Eastern locations.

Airports Authority of India
The Kerala Flying club founded the airport in 1932. Its operations have significantly increased over time, and in 1991 it was designated as an international airport.
It serves as a focus city for many important domestic carriers in the nation and serves as Air India Express’ secondary hub. Thiruvananthapuram International Airport was given to the Adani Group in October of last year as part of the Airports Authority of India’s (AAI) proposal to lease out some of its airports.
