SpiceJet, an Indian low-cost carrier, is expanding its international presence by entering into the European market by launching of two new flights connecting Amritsar with Milan Bergamo (BGY) and Rome (FCO) on November 5 and November 9, respectively.
The airline will operate these flights using its B-737-MAX and due to the lack of long-range aircraft, SpiceJet will operate these flights with a 40-minute refuelling stop at Tbilisi (Georgia).
SpiceJet Flights to Milan and Rome
According to the airline, the flights between Amritsar and Milan Bergamo which is scheduled to start on November 05, will be weekly flights and operated on Saturdays.
Flights to Rome will be operated twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays beginning November 09. The ATQ-FCO flight will also be a one-stop flight with a 40-minute refuelling stop in Tbilisi, Georgia’s capital.
The detailed schedule of SpiceJet flights between Amritsar and Milan and Rome, including time, stopovers, and operating days, is made available below.
|Flight No.||From||Dep. Time||To||Arr. Time||Days of Ops|
|SG49||ATQ||13:30||TBS||17:50||Wed & Fri|
|SG50||FCO||20:40||TBS||03:10||Wed & Fri|
SpiceJet has begun accepting bookings for both European routes, ATQ-BGY-ATQ and ATQ-FCO-ATQ, with one-way all-inclusive fares starting at just ₹50,000.
It should be noted that this is not the first time a low-cost airline has operated on European routes. During and after the Covid-19 pandemic, SpiceJet was constantly operating charter flights on Milan and Rome routes. Meanwhile, SpiceJet still has held on to its Birmingham slots, so we may see a scheduled Birmingham service soon.
The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) recently lifted the restrictions imposed on low-cost carriers, allowing them to operate at full capacity beginning October 30. SpiceJet can now operate at full capacity during the ‘Enhanced Surveillance’ period, as the air carrier had shown improvements.
