Home to the famous temple dedicated to Sai Baba, Shirdi receives an estimated 60,000 pilgrims every day. With the new flights launched, tourists who otherwise take a rail or road tour, can conveniently switch to a more convenient and time-sensitive travel mode.

With the introduction of daily direct flight services on the route, passengers from Shirdi can now conveniently travel to a host of other cities both on SpiceJet’s domestic as well as international network via multiple onward connections from Delhi.
