Indiver Rastogi, President and Group Head, Global Business Travel, Thomas Cook (India) and SOTC Travel, on the introduction of VietJet service between Tiruchirappalli and Ho Chi Minh City, told businessline, the introduction of direct connectivity has seen an exponential growth of 6x in our volumes to Vietnam, and with Tamil Nadu being a key source market for us at Thomas Cook and SOTC, we expect to the Tiruchirappalli flight catalyse demand across our leisure, business and MICE segments.

Tiruchirappalli offers a valuable gateway, not just to Tamil Nadu, but across valuable source markets across South India, thus offering a viable hub and spoke model.
