Air India resumes Ludhiana-Delhi flight after three years

 

 

The national carrier Air India resumed its Ludhiana-Delhi flight from the domestic airport Sahnewal on Saturday, September 2, 2017, almost three years after the flight was discontinued in 2014 due to financial losses and lack of facilities at the airport. The 70-seater ATR-72 plane (of Alliance Air under Air India) carrying 41 passengers landed at Sahnewal airport at 1.50 pm and then departed for Delhi with 48 passengers.

 


Pawan Kumar, Assistant Manager, Air Traffic Control, Sahnewal Airport, informed that the flight would be operational four days a week on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

 


 Restarted under the UDAN (Udey Desh Ka Aam Nagrik) scheme launched by the central government, 50 per cent of the tickets are for Rs 2,000. “Price for rest of the tickets will depend on daily demand and supply formula. Like today, it was even available for Rs 1, 500,” said Kumar.

 


Ludhiana-Delhi Air India flight from Sahnewal was first discontinued in 1999 but resumed in 2010 following the efforts of former Ludhiana MP Manish Tewari and demand from local industrialists.
