Madurai airport will get three more services – two on Madurai-Chennai sector with one transit flight to Delhi and the third providing a direct connectivity between Madurai and Mumbai with onward flight to Delhi.

The new services will also see entry of a new airliner, Indigo, to Madurai with two flights with effect from March 1.

The low-cost airline would operate a flight between Chennai and Madurai and another one between Madurai and Delhi with a touchdown in Chennai.

The airline would operate a bigger aircraft, Airbus A320, with a capacity of 180 passengers.

“With availability of additional capacity on Chennai-Madurai sector, air fare is likely to fall drastically,” said N. Sriram, a leading travel agent.

Though the minimum fare in the sector starts at Rs. 1,200-Rs. 1,500, the average fare is about Rs. 4,000.

“Still, the fare touches anywhere between Rs. 15,000 and Rs. 18,000. We hope that this high fare will fall in the coming days,” Mr. Sriram added.

A spokesperson from Indigo said the best part of its services would be the nominal charges for extra baggage that would help passengers bound to international destinations.

While the minimum baggage was 15 kg per passenger, Indigo offered additional baggage at a cost Rs. 500 for 8 kg, Rs. 750 for 15 kg and Rs. 1,500 for 30 kg.

“This will be the cheapest charges for additional baggage,” the spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, Jet Airways is coming up a new connectivity – a direct flight to Mumbai for the first time that would further fly to Delhi.

The flight service will be available from February 26.

Welcoming additional services to Madurai airport, Airport Director V.V. Rao said the bigger flights would make air fares more competitive.

“Air fares will not only come down, but also become cheaper than air-conditioned rail journeys,” he said.

Additional connectivity to Madurai from Delhi and Mumbai will boost tourism and also attract more pilgrims to down south.

Announces introduction of a flight to Hyderabad from March 26

On the day of setting its foot in Madurai with two new flight services, IndiGo, a low-cost airliner, on Wednesday announced introduction of its third flight from Madurai to Hyderabad on MarchIts inaugural flight that landed here from Delhi after a stopover at Chennai was given a water cannon salute by the Airport fire-tenders.

“Madurai is our 37th domestic destination,” said its Director of Corporate Communications Ajay S. Jasra.

Besides, a New Delhi-Madurai-New Delhi (with touchdown in Chennai on both directions), the airliner has also simultaneously launched a Chennai-Madurai-Chennai daily service on Wednesday.

“Our third service – Hyderabad-Madurai daily flights – will commence on March 26. We have plans to operate our international flight to the Gulf from here within a couple of months,” he added.

Mr. Jasra also expressed IndiGo’s intention to fly out of Madurai to the Far East.

IndiGo will be the 6th airliner to operate its services from Madurai after Air India, Jet Airways, SpiceJet, Sri Lankan Airlines and Air Carnival.

“All our aircrafts are Airbus A320 with a seating capacity of 180 passengers. Wherever we go we operate daily flights with more options of connectivity to different destinations,” said its Senior Manager, Marketing and Communications, Nitin Arora.

Stating that passengers would enjoy a very competitive airfare with IndiGo, he said though the pricing would be dynamic, the lowest prices would be between ₹ 1200 and ₹ 1900.

IndiGo was known for its on time performance.

Madurai Collector K. Veera Raghava Rao, Joint General Manager, Engineering (Civil) of Airports Authority of India, S. Ravichandran, Central Industrial Security Force Commandant Cha, were among those who took part in the inaugural function

Profound Thanks to Indigo Airlines for operating services from Madurai.Their as well as our hope of steady growth of passenger traffic from Madurai, will certainly entail more growth . eagerly awaiting the commencement of Indigo services to destinations like Sharjah, Dubai, Muscat and Singapore , as announced in Indigo's statements to press. Given such a potential , it is very regrettable, as the State owned Air-India as well as early entrants like Jet airways , confined their service only to Chennai and never beyond. We sincerely hope Madurai Airport breaks all the barriers and emerges as a successful, profitable entity.
