To be operated six days a week, it will once again give direct connectivity to those visiting Takht Sri Patna Sahib, a gurdwara that commemorates the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh.
Just days after the flight made its maiden journey on March 5 last year, it was discontinued, following the closure of air connectivity due to Covid-19 pandemic.
An airline spokesperson said it has already started online bookings. One-way travel will cost around ₹4,105 per person, subject to flexi-fare policy.
The flight will depart from Chandigarh at 11:45am and will cover the distance in approximately two hours to reach Patna at 1:35pm. It will take off on its return journey at 6:10pm and land in Chandigarh at 8:15pm.
