Chandigarh-Bangkok flight 4 times in a week from Nov

Chandigarh: The cash-strapped public sector aviation giant, Air India, is all set to launch a direct flight from Chandigarh to Bangkok in the winter.
According to information provided by the airlines before the Punjab and Haryana high court during the resumed hearing of a petition regarding the delay in launching of international flights from the Chandigarh airport, Air India would launch the flight in November. It would operate for four days in a week.
The Chandigarh-Bangkok flight was first announced on September 15, 2016, by Air India chairman and managing director Ashwani Lohani during the launching of the first flight by Air India Express, a subsidiary of Air India, from Chandigarh to Sharjah.
Earlier, the flight was to start in April but was deferred for May because of delay in procuring new aircraft.
