Chandigarh to start direct flights to London from October

Chandigarh: The Chandigarh International Airport is likely to start direct flight service to London from October this year. This decision will come as a huge relief to the people of Punjab who want to travel to the United Kingdom.

“The authorities had a meeting with the British High Commission about starting the flight to London. Proposals have been sent and it is expected to start from October, as the process will take nearly eight months to complete. The direct flight will most likely be to the Heathrow Airport in London or Birmingham airport, which is around 170km from the UK capital,” Rakesh Dembla, chief executive officer, Chandigarh International Airport Limited (CHAIL), told Hindustan Times.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Chandigarh International airport six years ago in 2015.

The airport currently has two international flights to Sharjah and Dubai as of now.

Dembla said the Sharjah flight was operational currently, while that to Dubai will resume from March 28, when the summer flight schedule will kick in.
