Now, direct flights to Chandigarh and Bagdogra from Patna

Patna: Budget carrier IndiGo launched direct flights to Chandigarh and Bagdogra from Patna on Thursday. They were given a ceremonial water-cannon salute as they touched down at the Jayaprakash Narayan International Airport.
While the Chandigarh-Patna-Bagdogra flight (6E-6148) reached the city airport at 7.27am and departed for Bagdogra at 8.30am, the Bagdogra-Patna-Chandigarh flight (6E-6149) arrived here at 11.35am and left for Chandigarh at 12.05pm.

IndiGo executives claimed that both the flights were almost full during arrival and departure.

Airport director Bhupesh C H Negi told this newspaper, “Now, the average number of daily flights at the city airport, which are part of the winter schedule, has reached 54 (IndiGo: 24, GoAir: 12, SpiceJet: 11, Air India: 6 and Vistara: 1).”

He added, “Pilgrims from Chandigarh, Punjab and neighbouring areas, who are willing to visit Patna Sahib, can come here easily now. Direct connectivity to Bagdogra will also make it easy for tourists to visit Sikkim. In fact, Patnaites can now travel directly to Hyderabad, Amritsar, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Ranchi, Lucknow, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai.”
