Soon, SpiceJet, A-I to resume Dharamsala flights

Palampur: Air India and SpiceJet will resume all flights on  the Delhi-Dharamsala circuit from  March 27. These were suspended two years ago because of Covid. 

Since the tourist season is about to begin and  Covid cases have come down, both airlines  have agreed to  resume the flights.

Official sources said  SpiceJet  and Air-India will operate two flights each between Delhi and Dharamsala daily,   while Air-India will also launch a flight to Dharamsala via Chandigarh and back  daily.

Besides,  in April,  IndoGo will also start one more flight between Dharamsala and Delhi. IndiGo will be the third airlines to operate from the Gaggal airport. With the number of flights increasing to six a day, airfares are likely to come down. Besides, it will also increase the tourist inflow to Kangra.

The Gaggal airport is the busiest airports of Himachal Pradesh. The airport strip is 1,372 metre. As only small planes can land here, the airfare is among the highest in the country. It touches Rs 21,000 for one-way trip from Dharamsala to Delhi in the peak season.  It is expected that with the addition of new flights in this circuit,  the airfare  will   also come down.
