Now, Gaya-Delhi flight to fly daily

Gaya: The Gaya-Delhi IndiGo flight, which was launched on October 8 and flew four days a week, will operate daily from Friday. Besides, another flight of the same airline will fly on the Gaya-Delhi route every Sunday.

According to airport director Dilip Kumar, slot requests for flights on the Bengaluru-Gaya and Kolkata-Gaya-Varanasi routes (both IndiGo) and the Delhi-Gaya-Varanasi route (Air India) have been cleared.

“The flight schedules will be announced only after an analysis of the passenger flow,” Dilip told this reporter on Thursday.

Although uncertainty still prevails over resumption of international flights, more domestic ones are likely to operate from Gaya soon.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Ministry of Civil Aviation had allowed domestic carriers to increase their operations from the existing 60% to 70% of the pre-Covid approved capacity.

Tourism biz hit: With uncertainty over operation of international flights, the locals are worried about the poor footfalls at the Mahabodhi Temple which was thrown open to visitors on October 1. The tourism business is yet to pick up the pace in Gaya.

Tourists and devotees from Thailand, Japan, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, Bhutan and European countries visit Bodh Gaya between October and February every year.
