By the second week of October, Chandigarh International Airport will also add Ranchi and Jodhpur to its operational list. According to the information received, new flights connecting Ranchi in Jharkhand with Patna and Jodhpur in Rajasthan will be included in the winter schedule. Apart from this, the airport will also resume its flights to Jammu and Patna, which will be further extended to Ranchi.
CEO Ajay Bhardwaj said that they will resume their operations in Jammu and Patna. After stopping at Patna, the flight will leave for Ranchi. He said that we will also add direct flights to Jodhpur. ‘Bubble flights’ to Sharjah and Dubai, which were suspended after the second wave of Kovid in the country, will resume from the first week of October. While 24×7 operations at Chandigarh International Airport became a reality in April 2019, no new flights were added to the roster since then.
The ‘bubble flights’ from Chandigarh to Sharjah and Dubai will start in October.
32 flights operated by 4 airlines
Bhardwaj informed that at present 32 flights are being operated from Chandigarh International Airport by 4 airlines – Air India, Indigo, GoAir and Vistara to different destinations. The flight from Chandigarh to Sri Patna Sahib will run six days a week.
Direct flight to Patna Sahib was stopped due to Kovid restrictions
Let us inform that in March last year, Indigo Airlines started direct flights from Chandigarh to Patna Sahib, but the operations were stopped due to Kovid restrictions. The flight resumed in January this year but was again halted in March.
