Flying to Every State and Union Territory in India

I’m very glad you enjoy it! Honestly the small bits of information about a region/city is the least I could do for a country with such rich and fascinating history 😀

#4 - Goa 🇮🇳


Flight: SG3419 [B]

Route: Surat (VASU) - Goa (VOGO)

Aircraft: SpiceJet Dash-8 Q400

Goa is a true gem of India with coastlines stretching along The Arabian Sea. The former Portuguese Colony, despite being India’s smallest state by area, is instrumental to the economy, having the highest GDP per capita among all Indian states. Goa is visited by large numbers of international and domestic tourists each year because of its white-sand beaches and active nightlife! The famous Vindaloo Dish also originated from Goa, based on the Portuguese dish ‘carne de vinha d’alhos’, and is a delicacy enjoyed globally as a staple of curry house and Indian restaurant menus!

Diwali Special 🪔

#5 - Haryana 🇮🇳


Flight: 6E724

Route: Goa (VOGO) - Chandigarh (VICG)

Aircraft: IndiGo A320-200

First of all, a very happy and safe Diwali to everyone celebrating! Diwali ki Shubhkamnaye!

To celebrate today, I will be covering both the State of Haryana as well as the Union Territory of Chandigarh. Chandigarh is the shared capital of both Haryana and Punjab, however I will be covering Punjab at a later date, so just Haryana for now. Chandigarh was designed by the Swiss-French modernist architect, Le Corbusier and is known for its modernist buildings and gridlike street plan.

Hey @candrej - a small error…what you’ve marked in the map is the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Assam is the long, two-pronged-shaped state just south of that.

#8 - Mizoram 🇮🇳


Flight: 6E312

Route: Guwahati (VEGT) - Aizawl (VELP)

Aircraft: IndiGo A320-200

Named “the home of the highlanders”, Aizawl, is the capital of the north-eastern state of Mizoram. The city is located at approximately 3500ft above sea level and surrounded by beautiful hilly countryside. It is also home to the Mizo language, spoken in both Mizoram and parts of Myanmar (Burma). The state is rich in culture and famous for it’s handicrafts.

I would also just like to add that I’m extremely grateful for the support this thread has gained in the last two weeks since I posted, I appreciate it a lot! I’m going to be taking a short break from this topic for now as I do some flights in neighbouring Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal and to get the full experience of the subcontinent!

#9 - West Bengal 🇮🇳


Flight: AI712

Route: Aizawl (VELP) - Kolkata (VECC)

Making a return to this today after a short break, marking the state of West Bengal after picking up from where I left off at Mizoram. West Bengal is a state located between the Himalayas and The Bengal Bay and is India’s fourth most populous state, largely down to the size of it’s State Capital - Kolkata - home to 14.85 million residents! In fact, Kolkata (Calcutta as it was named then) was the capital of India when under British Raj Rule from 1773 to 1911. It is a city famous for it’s grand colonial architecture, art galleries and cultural festivals.

#12 - Madhya Pradesh 🇮🇳


Flight: 6E6219

Route: Raipur (VERP) - Indore (VAID)

Aircraft: IndiGo A320-200

I noticed that I hadn’t done one of these in a while, so for that reason today I am bringing a double-flight post.

I had the pleasure of being accompanied by @Eagle2703 for the first flight today, which took place between Raipur and Indore. Indore is the capital of Madhya Pradesh, with a rich history tracing it’s roots back to it’s role as a 16th century trading hub between the Deccan and Delhi. The city has also been ranked as “India’s cleanest city” four years in a row (2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020).


#13 -Tamil Nadu 🇮🇳


Flight: 6E756

Route: Indore (VAID) - Chennai (VOMM)

Aircraft: IndiGo A320-200

I also noticed that India’s Southern States had been somewhat neglected so far, so decided it was probably a good idea to do my next flight there. So I did, this time without Ian’s company. Tamil Nadu is a state located in the very South East of India, known for it’s vibrant beaches and historical landmarks, including the Fort St. George, built in (what was then called Madras) in 1639. The Kapaleeshwarar Temple is another recognisable landmark in the state of Tamil Nadu - a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva located in the Mylapore area of Chennai.

@Ritesh321, this one is for you Sir!
