Flights back in the air in Mysuru, Belagavi from Monday

Mysuru: The lockdown had kept the Mysuru airport for two months, but flights will resume from the Heritage City from Monday.
However, flights will be operated only to and from Bengaluru and Belagavi. Mysuru residents, while pleased with resumption of operations at the airport, appear to have reservations aplenty about inter-state flights.
The schedule pointed to a change in the departure and arrival of the flight from Bengaluru. As against its operations in the afternoon, the flight will be operated in the evening. According to the revised timetable, the Mysuru-bound flight from Bengaluru will depart at 4.30pm, and reach its destination at 5.30pm, and will take off from Mysuru at 6.15pm. The flight will reach the state capital at 7.15pm. The schedule, however, is not applicable for Tuesday, when the Mysuru-bound flight will leave Bengaluru at4.30pm, and depart from Mysuru on its return journey at 6.15pm.

The flight leaving Belagavi at 3.30pm will reach Mysuru at 4pm, and leave the Heritage City at 4.55pm and reach the border district at 6.15pm.

Mysuru airport director R Manjunath said that they were still in the process of finalising schedules for other flights. Meanwhile, passengers can book tickets for flights between Mysuru and Kalaburagi from May 30, while tickets for journeys to and from Chennai can be reserved from May 27. People can also book tickets for flights between Mysuru and Hyderabad from May 28.

President of Mysuru Travels’ Association BS Prashanth expressed concerns about flights resuming to cities that are Covid-19 hotspots. “Government must frame foolproof laws for passengers coming from these cities that are Covid-19 hotspots,” Prashanth.
