4 new flights on Del-Patna route from March 26

Frequent fliers between Patna and New Delhi have reasons to rejoice as four new flights are expected to operate on the route from March 26.
According to Airports Authority of India (AAI) sources, Indigo and Air India have proposed one flight each while Jet Airways has proposed two flights on the route.

The new flights are part of the summer schedule of the airlines. Since flights fail to land at Patna before 10am due to foggy conditions in winter, most airlines had cancelled or rescheduled their morning flights while finalising their winter schedule, which came into effect from December. Now that the foggy conditions are over, morning flights can operate.

With the proposed additions, the number of flights operating from Patna will go up to 30. For now, the proposals have been sent for their further processing by the Director General of Civil Aviation, said the sources.
