Top flight destinations, India

As travel enthusiasts once again take to the skies, digital travel platform Agoda has unveiled the most sought-after domestic and international flight destinations of 2023. In India, Dubai stands tall as the preferred international destination, closely followed by Bangkok, Bali, Singapore and Hanoi. The list underscores India's strong inclination towards Southeast Asian getaways, with four of the top five international destinations falling into this category. On the domestic front, Indian travellers are soaring to New Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR), Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Pune, forming the top five domestic flight destinations.  

Agoda's booking data reveals that Southeast Asia holds immense appeal for Indian travellers, with four out of the five most popular international flight destinations nestled in the region. Bangkok claims the top spot, followed by Singapore at second place, while Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam secures the fourth position, and Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur, rounds out the top five. Seoul, South Korea, breaks the Southeast Asian dominance by ranking third among the most popular international flight destinations.

Andrew Smith, Senior Vice President of Supply at Agoda, commented, "Several factors contribute to the enduring popularity of Southeast Asian cities among Indian travelers. These destinations offer bustling metropolises with rich cultures, fascinating history, exquisite culinary scenes, and vibrant nightlife. Even as airlines expand their routes and fleets, it wouldn't be surprising to witness these remarkable destinations retaining their high rankings for years to come."

While Agoda initially made a name for itself as an online booking platform for hotels and vacation homes, its foray into flight bookings in 2019 has seen remarkable growth. Today, Agoda offers access to a staggering 130,000+ flight routes, making it a comprehensive one-stop platform for travel enthusiasts.
