India’s flybig boosts commuter flights

CHANDIGARH, India, 13 May 2024: Flybig, an Indian regional airline, announced this week it is increasing flights between Bathinda, Ghaziabad, and Ludhiana. 

Saying it responding to a surge in demand for air travel, flybig will increase frequencies from two to four flights per week to increase regional connectivity in line with the government’s vision for inclusive growth and economic empowerment across the nation.

Flybig is an Indian regional airline based in Gurugram, Haryana, India. It began operations in December 2020 and is focused on connecting smaller cities, or tier-2 cities, within India. As of March 2024, it had 24 destinations with a fleet of three aircraft covering three states. In November 2023, It temporarily ceased operations in Arunachal Pradesh, citing supply chain challenges as the primary reason for the suspension.

The decision to increase flight frequency between Bathinda, Ghaziabad, and Ludhiana reflects our commitment to meeting the growing demand for air travel on these routes.”
