Airport officials ask Air India to resume Ludhiana-Delhi flight

Ludhiana: Following the orders of the ministry of civil aviation, airport officials at Sahnewal have asked Air India to resume the lone Ludhiana-Delhi flight, which had been suspended more than six months back.

As per the order of the ministry dated October 12, the government has decided to restore the scheduled domestic operations with effect from October 18 without any capacity restriction.

Airport officials said after the ministry’s order, they have taken up the matter with Air India that flies the lone flight between Ludhiana and Delhi. Airport director S K Saran said he has communicated to Alliance Air to resume the flight.

The last flight between Ludhiana and Delhi had operated on April 9.

An officer of Air India said earlier, it had been announced that the flight will remain suspended till October 31, and they don’t know whether the flight will operate after that. A fewer number of 72 ATR planes for multiple destinations may be reason for suspension of the flight and the situation may continue, the official added. He said but they are getting queries from passengers about resumption of the flight.
