According to a source, the low-cost carrier IndiGo will start flights from Pune to Velana International Airport. This will also be IndiGo's first international flight from Pune.
"The 10-hour flight is expected to start from March 25. While exact details aren't known yet it will be an early morning flight – with a 5 AM take-off" a Pune airport official said.
"Indigo had been looking to start an international connection from Pune for a long time. A flight to Dubai was almost finalized last year, but things fell through" the official added.
According to the IndiaTimes the flight will not be a direct flight since it will halt at Bengaluru.
The budget passenger carrier started flights to the Maldives on last year's November as a part of it's international expansion.
