He described Gwalior as a “storehouse of history and culture”, noting the inauguration of direct flights from the commercial capital of Mumbai would support the Prime Minister’s vision of connecting every corner of the country through air services.

In addition to its historical and cultural attractions, Gwalior can develop into an industrial hub in its own right. The minister explained that the new air route will provide a time-saving travel option to citizens and promote new employment opportunities.

IndiGo and SpiceJet provide nonstop flights from Mumbai with a flight time of two hours and five minutes.

In addition, there are flights to  Gwalior from Bengaluru on SpiceJet with a flight time of three hours and from Delhi on IndiGo with a flight time of one hour.
