Salem is a new addition to IndiGo’s network, which is India’s favorite airline. Salem is currently proudly ranked 114th overall and 82nd domestically in the 6E network. Salem will be smoothly connected to Chennai starting on October 29, 2023, and to Hyderabad and Bengaluru starting on October 30, 2023, thanks to the advent of these direct flights. In line with the goals of the regional connectivity strategy, these new linkages have the potential to considerably improve interstate connectivity and promote regional accessibility.
“We are thrilled to introduce these new routes from Salem (in Tamil Nadu) to the vibrant cities of Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad,” said Vinay Malhotra, Head of Global Sales at IndiGo. These direct routes not only offer practical and affordable options for getting between these locations, but they also cut down on travel time significantly. We are dedicated to keeping our promise to offer travelers across our vast network inexpensive, on-time, courteous, and hassle-free travel experiences as we take to the skies and link people with their favorite locations.
Salem, the fifth-largest city in Tamil Nadu, is surrounded by hills on all sides and provides visitors an enthralling experience. The city has a strong historical legacy, which is reflected in several inscriptions. It is most renowned for its steel sector, since Salem Steel Plant produces steel goods that are utilized all throughout India. The neighborhood is dotted with temples, providing a great environment for pilgrimage. Salem has a variety of must-see locations, including hills, forts, and temples. Salem, which is located at the base of the Yercaud Hills, is a significant Tamil Naduese commercial hub. Four mountain ranges, including the Jeragamalai, Nagaramalai, Godumalai, and Kanjanamalai Hills, add to the city’s urban appeal. Salem is well known for its orange trees, coffee farms, and orchidarium. The thick trees that around Yercaud Lake further enhance the area’s natural attractiveness. Boating on the lake or hiking through the verdant Yercaud woodlands are two options for tourists. Salem as a city offers a special fusion of pilgrimage, culture, and environment.
All things considered, the addition of new direct flights will give tourists more practical travel options, improve connectivity and accessibility, and encourage tourism in these areas.
