Mysuru-Kochi flight services suspended till March 2020

Mysuru: The Mysuru-Kochi flight service offered by Alliance Air, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Air India, has been suspended till March 2020 due to runway re-carpeting work at the Cochin International Airport, Mysore Airport Director R Manjunath said on Saturday.
''There will be no daytime flight service for four months due to runway re-carpeting works at Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL). CIAL has instructed all the operating airlines to re-schedule their daytime flight services for four months from Nov. 20, 2019 to March 28, 2020'', he further said.
The suspension of Kochi service would be in place till the work at Cochin Airport was completed, he stated.
The re-carpeting would considerably improve the operational efficiency and aerodrome safety, specially during low visibility and adverse weather conditions, Mr Manjunath further stated.
Mr Manjunath asserted that instead of Kochi, the Air Alliance was looking at the possibility of operating flights to the newly-inaugurated Kalaburagi Airport or Mysuru-Bengaluru-Kolhapur sector.
''The Airlines is looking into the possibility to help businessmen travelling to Bengaluru, Belagavi and Uttara Kannada to places Ankola, Tirupati and Belagavi. The new route would be known either by this weekend or early next week, he disclosed.
