SpiceJet to launch services to Guangzhou

Indian low cost carrier (LCC) SpiceJet will be launching flights 4 times per week between Delhi and Guangzhou, the hub of the Chinese Pearl River Delta. Services will begin on 8th February, 2013 with the following schedule:

SG 81 — DEL – CAN — 1720-0035+1 — 2467 —  737-800
SG 82 — CAN – DEL — 0155-0525 — 1357 — 737-800

SpiceJet’s competition on this route will be SkyTeam member China Southern, who operates a daily 757-200, and is the only other airline to ply the route between India. While the timings are far from optimal, they do offer good connections to Chennai in both directions, which is an important connection between India’s manufacturing center and the hub of Chinese manufacturing.
