Speaking on the occasion, Sanjay Kumar, chief strategy and revenue officer at IndiGo said: “We are pleased to initiate direct connections between the city of eastern light, Guwahati and the Queen of the Deccan, Pune. These new domestic flights will strengthen inter and intra-regional connectivity and promote trade, commerce, as well as tourism in the eastern state.”

We are committed to providing an affordable, on-time, safe and hassle-free travel experience, onboard our lean clean flying machine across a wide network,” Kumar added.
