In subsequent few weeks, Pune airport will host three new flights connecting town with three locations: Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Prayagraj. Whereas town already enjoys connectivity with Hyderabad and Bengaluru, this would be the first time Pune could have a direct flight to Prayagraj.
As per data offered by Pune airport Director Ajay Kumar, “GoAir will join Hyderabad from February 5, AirAsia will join Bengaluru from February 15 and IndiGo will join Prayagraj from March 5.”
GoAir flight will depart at 11.05 am from Hyderabad and arrive at Pune at 12.25 pm and the return flight will depart Pune at 1 pm and arrive at Hyderabad at 2.20 pm. AirAsia flight will depart from Bengaluru at 4.45 am and arrive in Pune at 6.10 am. The flight will depart from Pune at 6.40 am and arrive in Bengaluru at 8.15 am. IndiGo flight will depart from Prayagraj at 9.20 am and arrive at Pune at 11.50 am, return flight will depart at 12.20 pm and arrive Prayagraj at 2.45 pm. The Prayagraj flight is below the Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS).
Dhairyashil Vandekar, aviation professional and analyst, mentioned, “The RCS flight between Pune and Prayagraj will certainly be a boon for a whole lot of devotees and pilgrims in western Maharashtra, who journey to this essential spiritual centre yearly both with the household or in teams.”
