Direct connections from Gwalior to Delhi and Indore effective Sep 01
In-line with its vision to further strengthen regional connectivity, IndiGo, India’s
leading carrier, today commenced operations from Gwalior. The new route was inaugurated with lamp
lighting at the Gwalior airport as well as Ministry of Civil Aviation in New Delhi. The ceremony was graced
by Honourable Union Minister for Civil Aviation – Shri Jyotiraditya Scindia (virtually), Honourable Chief
Minister of Madhya Pradesh (virtually-TBC), Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan, and other eminent dignitaries
from Gwalior, Bhopal, and Indore at the Gwalior airport.
Mr. Sanjay Kumar, Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer, IndiGo said, “We are pleased to launch operations
from Gwalior making it IndiGo’s 70th domestic destination and 4th station in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
This is yet another milestone for us as we make further strides in our plan to connect seven regional
destinations on 6E network this year. The winter capital of Madhya Pradesh, Gwalior, is known for its
beautiful forts, temples, tomb, museum, and palaces. The increased accessibility will not only enhance trade
and commerce, but also promote tourism in Gwalior, especially at this time when Indians are increasingly
looking towards domestic vacations to rejuvenate and destress. For Indians seeking to explore the culture
rich domestic cities, we are committed to providing an affordable, on-time, safe and hassle-free travel
experience, onboard our lean clean flying machine.”
Starting this month, IndiGo will now be operating 486 weekly flights from these four cities to key
destinations across the country. These new connections will strengthen connectivity to and from these
cities in Madhya Pradesh, while fulfilling the demand for enhanced regional connectivity. IndiGo will also
connect Gwalior to other metro and major cities like Bengaluru, Kolkata and Hyderabad via Delhi and
Mumbai and Goa via Indore.
