Adampur-Delhi SpiceJet flight to remain suspended till June 30

Jalandhar: Even as the operations of domestic flights have resumed in the country, the only Delhi-bound flight from the region is again suspended for next 24 days. Post-relaxations in the Covid-19 induced lockdown, the SpiceJet flight resumed on May 26, that too against it’s scheduled operation on May 23.
An official from SpiceJet confirmed that the flight would not reach the Adampur airport here till June 30.
The unavailability of required number of passengers was the main reason behind discontinuation of the flight services. There was another plan to start the Jaipur-Adampur flight on May 26, but this too could not be started. Flight operations on these routes have been severely affected due to less number of passengers.
The flight was also cancelled on May 23 due to the unavailability of passengers. There were only six passengers for Adampur from Delhi on May 23. Subsequently, after the recommencement of the 90-seater SpiceJet flight on May 26, only 18 passengers arrived at the Adampur airport from Delhi and left with 21 passengers. However, after three days of halt, the flight again reached here on May 30 with 36 passengers from Delhi and took off with 25 passengers. Since then, the movement of flight remain interrupted and on Friday, it was jointly decided by the authorities to suspend it’s operations till the next orders.
