SpiceJet has introduced daily flights connecting Delhi with Allahabad on its national network. The first flight on Delhi-Allahabad route will commence from February 4. The airline is deploying a 78-seater Bombardier Q-400 aircraft on this route.

SpiceJet will be flying from Delhi at 1.35 p.m. and will reach Allahabad airport at 2.30 p.m. Return flight to Delhi from Allahabad is at 2.50 p.m. The airline is offering a daily flight on this sector.

SpiceJet is also offering services to Allahabad from Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, Aurangabad and Bangalore to facilitate the public who wish to visit Allahabad on the occasion of Kumbh Mela, the airline said.

“New flight from SpiceJet would be helpful for people planning to attend the Kumbh Mela being held at Allahabad,” SpiceJet Chief Executive Officer Neil Mills said.

The Kumbh Mela, believed to be the largest religious gathering is held every 12 years on the banks of the ‘Sangam’ — the confluence of the holy rivers Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati.

The Mela alternates between Nashik, Allahabad, Ujjain and Haridwar every three years. The one celebrated at the Holy Sangam in Allahabad is the largest and holiest of them.
