AirAsia X takes off for Amritsar in Northern India on 16th August 2018. The inaugural flight will launch this new 4 times weekly direct service. Amritsar is AirAsia’s third destination in India. It’s part of the airline’s India expansion plans in 2018 offering an annual capacity of over 150,000 seats between the two cities.
Amritsar is one of the most popular destinations in Punjab in the northwestern part of India, with strong demand for greater access for visitors. This demand is especially noticeable from the Asia Pacific region. Amritsar is home to one of the most revered spiritual sites of Sikhism, the fabulous Golden Temple, Harmandir Sahib. Also known as Darbar Sahib, this important Gurdwara was opened in 1589 soon after the founding of the city in 1577.
Other historical sites in and around the city include the Jallianwala Bagh, Wagah Border and Gobindgarh Fort. There’s plenty to keep the shopaholics busy as well, and when you’re hungry, the wonderful North Indian food.
