AI Express to operate 28 weekly flights from NCR’s Hindon airport from Aug 1

Air India Express will start operating flights from Ghaziabad’s Hindon Airport, which will make it the only carrier to operate from two airports in the National Capital Region (NCR).

The airline will operate a total of 28 direct flights between Hindon and Bengaluru, Goa, and Kolkata from August 1, the carrier said.

“Besides operating over 280 flights a week from Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) in New Delhi, AIX (Air India Express) will be operating from Hindon Airport, ensuring enhanced connectivity to/from other cities in Western UP, Uttarakhand and Haryana,” the airline said.

Air India Express will operate two daily return flights from Bengaluru and a daily return flight each from Kolkata and Goa to the Hindon airport.

“Our network expansion is focussed on enhancing connectivity across the rapidly growing domestic and short-haul international market, particularly the new and underserved routes. The maturity and size of major metropolitan areas in India can support secondary airports, spreading the benefits of air connectivity and further stimulating growth…The new services will complement our operations from the primary airport serving Delhi NCR, providing convenient options,” said Aloke Singh, MD, Air India Express.
