Indian budget airline IndiGo on Thursday announced that it will restart daily non-stop flights on the Delhi-Singapore route from September 12.
William Boulter, the chief commercial officer at IndiGo, said, “We are committed to strengthening our international operations from Delhi to important destinations in Asia. As part of this expansion, we are introducing new flight services between Delhi-Singapore and second frequency on Delhi-Doha route.”
IndiGo used to operate daily Delhi-Singapore flights earlier, but decided to withdraw them during 2014-15 due to increasing competition from full-service carriers such as Jet Airways and Singapore Airlines.
The shutdown of Jet Airways’ operations on April 17 due to lack of funds created a vacuum which IndiGo is aiming to fill, an official statement said. Singapore Airlines and Tata-owned carrier Vistara also started its international operations with flights on the Delhi-Singapore route earlier this month.
The low-cost carrier will also add a second flight frequency on the Delhi-Doha route from September 16.
