Normal flight operations at Jammu airport to resume from Tuesday

Jammu: Normal flight movement would resume at Jammu Airport from Tuesday after it witnessed restricted seven-hour operations daily since March 20 owing to resurfacing work of the runway being done by the Indian Air Force (IAF), officials said on Sunday.

Jammu Airport Director Pravat Ranjan Beuria issued a fresh flight schedule effective from April 20, marking the resumption of normal flight operations to and from the airport.

According to the schedule, 25 flights of different airlines would operate from various destinations.

"The airport will be available for operations under earlier normal watch hours with effect from April 20. The first flight from Delhi is expected to land at the airport at 7.35 am and the last flight to depart for Srinagar at 4.20 pm," Beuria told PTI.

However, night landing at the airport would take some more time, he said.

"The IAF is doing base work for runway lights to be fitted by the Airports Authority of India," he said.

Earlier, the IAF had proposed complete closure of the airport for 15 days from March 6 for laying of the final two top DAC-II layers on the runway surface.
