SpiceJet to operate first international flight from Madurai
New Delhi: Low-cost carrier SpiceJet will become the first airline to operate an international flight from Madurai Airport with the Civil Aviation Ministry approving a proposal for connecting the city with Sri Lankan capital Colombo.

Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh told a Tamil Nadu MP that his Ministry has approved operation of a flight from Madurai to Colombo.

"He (Ajit Singh) told me that he has cleared a proposal allowing Spicejet to operate between Madurai and Colombo," Virudhunagar MP Manick Tagore said after meet Singh here today.

Tagore has been demanding that the Ministry should allow private operators to fly to international routes from Madurai to facilitate people in the southern districts of Tamil Nadu.

This would mean Madurai getting its first international connectivity after being elevated as an international airport.

When Spicejet starts the operation, Madurai would become the third airport in Tamil Nadu to operate international flights.
