SpiceJet (SG, Delhi Int'l) is planning to start services to Jharsuguda on March 31, 2019, Indo Asian News Service has reported. The carrier intends to connect the city with Delhi Int'l, Hyderabad Int'l, and Kolkata Int'l.

SpiceJet has not finalised its proposed schedule from Jharsuguda yet.

The airport in the east Indian state of Odisha was opened on September 22, 2018, and briefly saw scheduled traffic under the government-sponsored UDAN programme with Air Odisha (Bhubaneswar). The regional carrier, however, ended flights to Jharsuguda already on October 6 and did not resume them despite calls from the government for it to do so. Finally, Air Odisha's licence to operate UDAN routes was cancelled in late November 2018.

Odisha is primarily served by Bhubaneswar airport in the state's capital, the only international airport in the state.
