With the addition of these new flights from Gwalior, Bhopal and Jharsuguda (announced during the week), SpiceJet will be operating 39 daily flights under the regional connectivity scheme.

The airline will be deploying its Bombardier Q-400 aircraft on all the 10 UDAN routes and will be using its fleet of Boeing 737 for the non-UDAN route of Bhopal-Chennai-Bhopal, it said.
