Hubballi: Air India, which is presently operating flights from Hubballi to Bengaluru five days a week, has hinted ?at increas?ing the frequency from August. It has assured to operate flights daily. As of now, only Air India is operating flights between Bengaluru and Hubballi. The daily service was supposed to begin almost three months ago but due to staff crunch, the operator had postponed the plan.
