Kataria added that the timings of the flight have been changed. The flight from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport will depart for Kolhapur on the said days at 12.20 pm and will reach its detination by 1.35 pm. Likewise, the flight for Mumbai will depart from Kolhapur airport at 1.50 pm and will arrive in Mumbai at 3.00 pm. The fare for the flight is around Rs 2,025 for both the routes.
