As part of this expansion, the airline will connect the two north-eastern destinations, which will be its seventh and eighth, respectively, with Bengaluru, Akasa Air said in a statement.
These new flights will provide seamless one-stop connectivity between Bengaluru and Agartala with no change of aircraft required at Guwahati, it said.
The airline launched its services on the domestic routes from August 7 this year.
Akasa said it has been progressively expanding its operations and will be flying a total of 11 non-stop routes along eight cities – Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Guwahati, and Agartala from October 21.
To further enhance connectivity on existing sectors, the airline has also announced additional daily flights on the Bengaluru-Chennai route also commencing from October 21.
Guwahati, the gateway to Assam, and Agartala are among the fastest growing cities in the region and the enhanced air connectivity will provide a boost to the immense potential of the region’s aviation, industrial, and tourism prospects, said Praveen Iyer, Co-founder, and Chief Commercial Officer, Akasa Air.
Apart from flights between Bengaluru and Agartala, the airline has further augmented its network between Bengaluru and Chennai by adding a 5th frequency between this route, he added.
Akasa also said it is expecting its network to grow to 300 weekly flights by the end of its summer schedule (October-end).
