Passengers flying from Chandigarh will soon get connectivity to Indore, Kolkata and Ahmedabad. As many as four domestic flights are starting to these destinations after the Chandigarh International Airport reopens on June 1 after a 20-day closure for runway upgrade work.

Go Air will start an Ahmedabad-Chandigarh-Srinagar flight on June 1. They had earlier listed this flight for April 16, but could not operate it due to airport’s closure.

Indigo will begin its Bengaluru-Chandigarh flight on July 1, while its flight to Kolkata is scheduled for first take-off from Chandigarh on July 15. Kolkata flight is also connected to Srinagar. The airline is already operating two flights to Bengaluru from the airport.

Similarly, Jet Airways will start a flight between Chandigarh and Indore on August 1.

Sharing this, Chandigarh airport spokesperson Deepesh Joshi said the new flights will improve airport’s domestic connectivity. “However, no new international flights are scheduled in the near future,” he added.

The airport currently operates 27 domestic flights and three international flights.
