IndiGo plans to add another destination in its international portfolio and extend connectivity into China to one of its busiest and fastest growing cities – Chengdu.
The carrier will be operating daily non-stop flights between Delhi-Chengdu-Delhi effective September 15, 2019. IndiGo shall be opening sale of the flights as soon as they secure the requisite regulatory approvals.
While also operating to five other international destinations in Asia, this flight will make Chengdu, the airline’s 19th international destination. This will be the first non-stop service between Chengdu to India.
William Boulter, Chief Commercial Officer, IndiGo said, “This is truly a milestone moment for all of us at IndiGo. India is witnessing a much higher growth rate with respect to aviation and currently, the India-China route is underserved by Indian carriers. With our plan to operate non-stop daily flights to this Chengdu we are providing the much-needed connectivity between the two destinations. China is a market with immense potential and holds prominent trade, cultural and tourism values. We hope to further strengthen this relation by announcing our entry into China.”
