Good flight journey and memorable one

Aug 25, 2015
Mode of Transport: Flight

We were excited in the flight, thinking all about Shimla. Had a non veg meal of average quality. Most of the time just talking about the places we were going for sightseeing and activities.

After the flight, travelled to Kalki from Delhi. And then, The toy train from Kalki to Shimla was one my first as such experience and believe me the best to remember till date. It was chill and little drizzle of rain. Cool breeze. What else you want. Would surely like to experience the train journey again.

Mode of Transport: Flight

It was an awesome journey to Shimla. We all with our family boarded the flight on 24th October. After two and half hours of journey we landed safely at Shimla Airport. The flight was on time and the flight air-hostess were also good. Thought the flight was early in the morning we were able to reach on time at the Airport.

Good flight & very friendly staff

Mode of Transport: Flight

IndiGo offers very good service at a great price. We were extremely pleased with the overall experience. I truly liked Bangalore International Airport as compared to New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport. Good flight and very friendly staff. We will prefer Indigo for my future travels.
