Second Ludhiana-Delhi flight deferred

Ludhiana: For city residents, the wait for the second Air India flight will get a little longer as according to airport authorities the aviation operator will start services after obtaining necessary approvals. Meanwhile, the first 70-seater Air India flight is receiving humongous response from the commuters, as per the airport authorities.
Airport manager, Anand Narayan Sharma said, "The response to the first service has been good with more than 90% load. Several times it is even 100%. We are expecting the second flight of Deccan Charters N 28 with a seating capacity of about 20 to start in November. About five days ago a representative told me that they will be getting approval soon."
Airport informed that the Deccan flight will operate between Ludhiana and Delhi in the afternoon as during winters it would require at least 2,100 meters visibility. "In morning and evening during winters, the presence of fog brings visibility down to below 2,000 m," he said.
"The time schedule may change to morning due to demand," said a source. While the Air India flight operates for four days, the Deccan Charters flight will fly throughout the week. The city residents are anxiously waiting for the second Ludhiana to Delhi flight.
"We have heard about the traffic on first flight and are now eagerly waiting for the second one. But the timings pose a problem as it plies only in the afternoon and evening. We would want the second flight to operate in the morning hours", said Narinder Singh, a resident of Pakhowal road.
