Bad luck continues to stay with Belagavi as SpiceJet has decided to ditch Belagavi and from may 14 and all 5 flights that were operational from Belagavi have been diverted to Hubballi.
Recently SpiceJet got slots under the RCS UDAAN scheme in which it will get some concessions and gene it has decided as per its website to divert all flights with the same numbers which were operational from Belagavi to Hubballi. From April 8 some services have been shut and from may 14 all the 5 services operational currently to Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad will be diverted to Hubballi.
From May 14 All Flights canceled from Belagavi and diverted to Hubballi.
This was in the pipeline but aviation experts had maintained that as the load factor on all sectors from Belagavi was good SpiceJet might not cancel its services from here. But the worst has happened the upgraded airport will have a deserted look if no new flight operators start from here.
Here to political lobbying or anything else the oldest airport will be a dumb spectator from may 14.
This is a biggest blow to the aviation industry here and also this may affect the overall business.
