Another flight to Valley takes off

After connecting directly with Bengaluru earlier this month, the international airport in Mohali yesterday saw a second direct flight take off for Srinagar.
SpiceJet reintroduced its direct flight to the Valley. It took off from the city at 12.35 pm and reached its destination at 1.50 pm. From Srinagar, the direct flight to Chandigarh departed at 2.30 pm and reached here at 3.40 pm.
Indigo has already been running a direct flight from Chandigarh to Srinagar.
SpiceJet had reintroduced the daily direct flight between Chandigarh and Srinagar, which had been discontinued for some time, said airport CEO Sunil Dutt.
Meanwhile, IndiGo, which had introduced a daily direct flight between Chandigarh and Bengaluru on October 9, has increased its frequency to thrice daily. “After seeing a massive response to the single flight every day, we have increased its frequency,” the airline official said.
