Air India to cancel Kullu, Delhi flights from Dec 2

Air India will not operate two flights in the winter season due to fog and unfavourable weather conditions from December 2.

RK Negi, local station manager, Air India, said due to fog and the onset of winter, Air India’s flight to Kullu and Delhi would be cancelled. He said, “The flight to Kullu and one flight to Delhi would be cancelled in the revised schedule for the winter season, which would come into effect from December 2.”

Air India had started the Chandigarh-Kullu-Chandigarh flight on October 13. The 45-minute flight, which is currently operational from Monday to Saturday, comes from Bhuntar at 8.35 am and reaches the Chandigarh airport at 9.20 am. The flight then departs from Chandigarh at 9.50 am and reaches Kullu at 10.35 am.

The response to the flight to the hill station has been below par. Bookings have been reduced due to pay load restrictions, which allow only 30 to 35 bookings for the 70-seater aircraft.

Another Air India flight to Delhi, which was started on October 30 by the domestic carrier, will be cancelled from December 2. The flight is currently operational for six days from Monday to Saturday. It is the first flight to arrive at the airport, reaching at 6.55 am and departing at 7.25 am.

An airport official said, “Due to low visibility and landing problems in the winter season, it is likely that more morning flights are rescheduled or cancelled.” — TNS
