While the flights on Ahmedabad-Darbhanga-Ahmedabad will operate daily, flights on Pune-Darbhanga-Pune and Hyderabad-Darbhanga-Hyderabad will operate on all days except Saturdays.
SpiceJet had on November 8, 2020, launched daily direct flights connecting Darbhanga with Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru and is the first and only airline operating to the city.

The airline will deploy a mix of its Boeing 737 and Bombardier Q400 aircraft on these routes.
SpiceJet Chief Commercial Officer Shilpa Bhatia said the company is delighted to further expand domestic operations and add 30 new flights on the network.
“After the successful launch of our Darbhanga flights, which have received a tremendous response, we have decided to further enhance connectivity to the city with new flights to Pune, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad.
