During this summer vacation, plan a holiday in Bangkok. 

Air India has decided to fly flights between Chandigarh and Bangkok for four days in a week from May onwards. The flight schedule though is yet to be finalised.

However, as planned earlier, Air India is yet to take a final call about starting of flights connecting Chandigarh and Singapore.

The increasing air connectivity within India and major cities around the globe is done under the “Hub and Spoke Policy” of Air India. Under “Hub and Spoke Policy”, Air India connects various cities in India with metro cities like Delhi and Mumbai before flying the international passengers abroad.

The information was divulged by Air India in the ongoing case before Punjab and Haryana High court on public interest litigation filed by the Mohali Industries Association.

What Air India is planning to do to make Chandigarh Airport more passenger friendly?

Underpass at Chandigarh International Airport: After Air Force’s approval, the work of conducting technical feasibility study for construction of underpass at Chandigarh International Airport has been awarded to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and the survey will be completed within 30 days.

Land acquisition for parallel runway : A Central government’s high-level’s meeting is scheduled to decide on the matter and sort out all the outstanding issues pending till now. The new parallel runway will be CAT-III Instrument Landing System-compliant and will be used for military as well as civil operations.

Regarding the similar PIL filed by the Amritsar Vikas Manch seeking resumption of non-stop international Air India flights from Amritsar International Airport to London, Birmingham and other countries, the court directed Air India to file reply as to why the international flights cannot take off from Delhi to land in Amritsar and then take off directly for international destinations.
