SpiceJet operated a tri-weekly service to Sharjah. The response was good and at least 130 passengers travelled per flight. Other than Dubai, as of now, no other International flights have been scheduled from Pune, said officials.
“Many airlines are looking for slots and we hope we can have flights for places like Singapore, Maldives and Middle East countries in the coming months,” said Dhoke.
