SpiceJet recently announced the launch of four new direct flights to Maharashtra. SpiceJet is the first and only airline to provide air connectivity to the temple town of Shirdi with daily direct flights from Delhi. 
Home to the famous temple dedicated to Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi receives an estimated 60,000 pilgrims every day. With the new flights launched, tourists who otherwise take a rail or road tour can conveniently switch to a more convenient and time-saving travel mode.
Additionally, the airline has also launched a new daily direct flight on the route of Mumbai-Kanpur. The airline also operated its first direct flight on the Mumbai-Jaisalmer route, and a third direct flight is to be started on Mumbai-Kolkata route from  November 1, 2018.
Shilpa Bhatia, Chief Sales and Revenue Officer, SpiceJet said, “This is indeed a proud moment for us and a celebrated milestone for Indian Aviation as SpiceJet becomes the first and only airline to connect Shirdi with Delhi. Our new flight will offer an immediate boost to Religious Tourism that the city is best known for.”
