The coastal South Indian city of Vishapatnam, popularly known as Vizag, will soon get a spot on the international air map for the first time thanks to Singapore Airlines' subsidiary SilkAir.

SilkAir plans to start direct services between Singapore and Visakhapatnam from October 28, 2012.

The flights will operate three times a week, departing on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, with next-day return flights.

SilkAir will operate the Vizag flights with Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft.

The service will feature both Business and Economy class cabins.

Vishapatnam, the second largest city in the state of Andra Pradesh, will be SilkAir’s eighth Indian destination.

Vizag is both a commercial and tourist hub.

Prominent tourist attractions around Vizag include the Dolphin’s Nose rock promontory, Araku Valley hill station and Borra Caves, famous for its spectacular, million-year-old stalactite and stalagmite formations.

SilkAir expects the direct flight between Vizag and Singapore will boost business and tourism in both countries.

SilkAir already flies to Bangalore, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata and Thiruvananthapuram.
