Virgin Atlantic and IndiGo have expanded their code-share, creating more chances for frequent travellers and opening up a variety of additional destinations around India, reports Zee News. Consumers may now purchase tickets, enabling them to connect easily to London and other cities through Delhi and Mumbai from locations like Varanasi, Srinagar, Goa, and Lucknow.
