FlyEasy (Bangalore Int'l) has announced Bhubaneswar to Bangalore Int'l as its maiden route, with an August launch date now set. Flights, which will also include a service to Raipur initially, will operate on-board EMB-170s though this has yet to be officially confirmed.

"We decided to run the flight from here as we are exploring flying potential in tier-II cities like Bhubaneswar," Rajesh Ebrahim, the airline's managing director, said.

Other cities that will also be served later in the year are: Pune, Goa Dabolim, Guwahati, Amritsar, and Surat.
