Star Air launches Mumbai-Kolhapur flight services, to operate thrice a week
The launch of Kolhapur not only celebrates the expansion of Star Air’s travel route but also marks the airline`s homecoming
To strengthen Kolhapur's regional connectivity, the Sanjay Ghodawat Group-backed Star Air launched its direct flight services between Mumbai and Kolhapur under the Regional Connectivity Scheme.
The launch of Kolhapur not only celebrates the expansion of Star Air's travel route but also marks the airline`s homecoming, as it serves as the base of Sanjay Ghodawat Group`s operations.
With Kolhapur transitioning itself into a commercial hub, Star Air looks forward to serving its passengers with utmost care and comfort by reducing the current 8-10 hour travel time via road and rail to just under an hour. Owing to its spiritual history, Kolhapur is also known as 'Dakshin Kashi.'
Star Air will operate thrice a week between Mumbai and Kolhapur on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday to begin with and will plan to expand the frequency to a daily service after observing the passenger response.
These scheduled flights plan to offer passengers the most affordable prices under the popular UDAN scheme.
Currently, Star Air offers scheduled flight services to 19 Indian destinations that include Ahmedabad, Ajmer (Kishangarh), Bengaluru, Belagavi, Delhi (Hindon), Hubballi, Indore, Jodhpur, Kalaburagi, Mumbai, Nashik, Surat, Tirupati, Jamnagar, Hyderabad, Nagpur, Bhuj, Bidar, and Kolhapur.
