Bihar’s Darbhanga Airport Begins Flight Operations to Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru

Flight operations under regional connectivity scheme (RCS) ‘Udan’ from Bihar’s Darbhanga airport started on Sunday, beginning its journey with its inaugural flight on Bengaluru-Darbhanga-Delhi route. 

Making the announcement, Union Civil Aviation minister Hardeep Puri, who had visited the city on September 13 to review the work at the airport, said that flight services from Darbhanga to Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru will begin from November 8, before the auspicious festival of Chhath Puja. 

Domestic carrier Spicejet will be operating these flights under ‘Udan’ from Darbhanga to Delhi, Bengaluru and Mumbai. The brand new airport is expected to save people in the region at least four-five hours of travelling to and from Patna, which was the only operational airport so far. 

Darbhanga MP Gopaljee Thakur, local MLA in the outgoing assembly Sanjay Saraogi and MLC Dilip Chaudhary boarded the inaugural flight with 180 passengers from Darbhanga to Delhi.
