Patna: Four flights are set to resume operations from Jayaprakash Narayan International Airport (JPNI), Patna from February 16 with gradual improvement in visibility conditions.

Total 37 flights are scheduled to operate from JPNI airport, but officials said as many as nine flights were cancelled during peak winter months of December and January owing to poor visibility due to dense fog.
