"After the recent launch of Tiruchirappalli as its 51st destination, IndiGo is all set to add two more sectors - Tiruchirappalli-Bengaluru and Tiruchirappalli-Kochi," the release said.

Effective June 1, IndiGo will operate four new flights connecting Tiruchirappalli to Chennai while the Tiruchirappalli-Kochi flights will be operational from June 28, the company said.
