IndiGo is the country's largest carrier as it had 44.3 per cent share of the domestic passenger market in first quarter of 2019, according to DGCA data.
Chief Commercial Officer of IndiGo William Boulter Wednesday said, "We are strengthening our network from Kolkata with six new flights including a new RCS (Regional Connectivity Scheme) route. Kolkata-Shillong-Kolkata, our next RCS route, will significantly increase connectivity and tourist traffic in the northeast region."
"Shillong, an important city in the northeast, will be the 54th domestic destination in our network," he said.
"Kathmandu is an important market for us and strengthening connectivity on this route will give a fillip to tourism in both the destinations," Boulter said.
