Only two international flights a day to be permitted at Chandigarh International Airport

Mohali: The Punjab Civil Aviation, in order to permit staggered arrival of flights, has decided to allow only two international flights per day carrying passengers stranded in various countries at the Chandigarh International Airport.

Divulging details, Girish Dayalan informed that requests were being received from various airlines/charter/other operators to land flights at the Mohali and Amritsar airport carrying Indians stranded abroad.

He said in view of this, during Unlock 2.0, permission would be granted to airlines/charter services/deportation flights to land on the subject to certain conditions.
“Primarily, to facilitate easier transport, the airlines may ensure that the flights carrying the passengers of other states — Haryana, Chandigarh and Himachal Pradesh — may land at Mohali while passengers from J&K and Himachal Pradesh may land at Amritsar,” Dayalan added.
Girish Dayalan said after consultation and keeping in view the capacity of handling incoming passengers and ensuring proper institutional quarantine, the arrival of flights might be staggered allowing only two flights a day at either airport. Under exceptional circumstances, more flights might be considered, he added.
