International Flights: You Can’t Fly to Any Foreign Country From This Indian City Till March 2021

New Delhi: In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Chandigarh International Airport has not listed a single international flight in its winter schedule that comes into effect from October 25 and last till March 2021. Besides, the number of domestic flights has been reduced from 36 to 29 in the latest schedule. 

For the past few years, several flights operating from Chandigarh International Airport remain grounded in winters due to low visibility. 

Earlier on September 18, Indian aviation regulator DGCA had said that foreign carriers can operate their non-scheduled cargo flights to and from six Indian cities — Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad — only. 

Notably, scheduled flights are those which get their schedule approved by the aviation regulator in advance for a period running into months. Non-scheduled flights are charter flights that are operated as per requirement.

Meanwhile, Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that he has requested Aviation Secretary PS Kharola to call a meeting on the issue of boosting cargo flight operations at the Amritsar airport.
