Chandigarh Int'l Airport: To Deal with 4pm Airport Closure, Air India Advances Sharjah Departure

Air India has pre-poned the timing of its Chandigarh-Sharjah flight by two-and-a-half hours from next month in wake of revised working schedule of Chandigarh international airport due to runway repair. The airport is currently operating till 10 pm, but from October 3, it will operate only till 4pm. From this date, all flights will also stand withdrawn on Sundays with the entire day given for repair work. This hit on operations will continue till March 31.

As a result, Air India's current departure of Chandigarh-Sharjah flight at 5.45pm has been revised to 3.20pm with operation limited from Monday to Saturday, informed Air India's local station manager RK Negi.

He also informed that the timings of its Pune and Mumbai flights have also been advanced and they will operate only for five days due to the operational hazard.

"The departure of Chandigarh-Pune flight has been advanced to 9.10am from 10.50am. Similarly, the departure timing of the Chandigarh-Mumbai flight has been revised from 5.40pm to 3.30pm in order to operate within the revised watch hours," said Negi. The new schedule, he clarified, will come in to force from October 3. There is however no change in Air India's flight timings to Delhi and Leh.
