More international flights from Lohegaon airport in the offing

Pune: Doors to the Middle East are all set to widen for Pune-based travellers as at least two flights are expected from here to the United Arab Emirates soon.
The new flights will also give a boost to passenger traffic, besides attracting foreign tourists, airport sources told TOI.
"A private airline is set to start flight operations to Dubai from the Pune airport in three months. Air India will also start an international flight to Sharjah, the final plans are being chalked out," the official said.
At present, four international flights — two to Dubai (Air India and SpiceJet), one to Abu Dhabi (Jet Airways) and one to Frankfurt (Lufthansa) — operate from the Pune airport.
