Low-cost carrier SpiceJet today launched daily non-stop flights on the Guwahati-Dhaka-Guwahati route under the Government's International Air Connectivity Scheme (IACS). 
 
The flight is the first ever to be operated under IACS, a press release from the airline said. It said the flight also underlined the airline's commitment to enhancing connectivity in the North East region.
 
SpiceJet is the only airline to offer direct air connectivity between Guwahati and Dhaka. 
 
The flag-off ceremony at Guwahati airport was attended by Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and other dignitaries.
 
Debojo Maharshi, Chief Marketing Officer, SpiceJet, said, “We are extremely delighted to launch our first ever direct flight under the International Air Connectivity Scheme between Guwahati and Dhaka. We believe that the tremendous success of RCS (Regional Connectivity Scheme) can be replicated in IACS as well thereby making international air travel much more affordable and convenient for Indians. Enhancing connectivity to the North-East has always been on top of our agenda and this new flight marks an important milestone in this regard.”
 
With the launch of the new flight services between Guwahati and Dhaka, SpiceJet now operates two flights under IACS besides operating a total of 43 flights connecting 24 cities under UDAN, the regional connectivity scheme.  This is the highest number of flights being operated by any Indian airline under UDAN.
 
SpiceJet is deploying its Bombardier Q400 on the Guwahati-Dhaka-Guwahati route.
