Private carrier GMG Airlines has increased flight frequencies on Chittagong-Kolkata route recently, GMG said in a statement yesterday.
The daily flights will start from Shah Amanat International Airport in Chittagong to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata. Earlier there were three flights a week between the two cities.
GMG also operates daily two flights from Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka to the Indian airport.
“We are delighted to have frequent flights between Chittagong and Kolkata. The higher frequency of GMG flights between Chittagong and Kolkata is the response to a growing demand for enhanced air connectivity in the region,” said Shahab Sattar, managing director of GMG Airlines. “GMG is expanding its global flight network to be connected with more destinations.”
GMG Airlines, now 50 percent owned by Beximco, started its operations on April 6, 1998. It began with domestic services and launched international flights in September 2004, with flights between Chittagong and Kolkata.
