Domestic air-carrier, Kingfisher Airlines, has plans to launch its Kolkata-Dhaka flight from May 15, an airline official said.
“We will be launching our first flight to Dhaka from Kolkata on May 15,” Kingfisher Airlines’s spokesperson told PTI here.
Dhaka would be the third overseas destination after London and Colombo for the Vijay Mallya-owned air-carrier, which already has the Government’s permission to fly across 13 international routes.
The airline has deployed an ATR 72-500 (60-seater) for the Kolkata-Dhaka flight which would run daily, the spokesperson said.
The flight IT-73 would leave Kolkata at 2.45 pm (local time) and arrive at Dhaka at 4.15 pm (local time), he said.
The return flight would take-off from Dhaka at 5.00 pm and land at Kolkata airport at 5.30 pm.
Kingfisher had launched its international operations in September last year with a Bangalore-London flight followed by the Mumbai-London, Bangalore-Colombo and Chennai-Colombo flights in January this year.
