Airline Operators Look To Increase Number Of Flights To Patna In March


According to a report by Ruchir Kumar, in The Business Standard, grappling with space constraint to cater to 26 departures, the Jayprakash Narayan International (JPNI) Airport will almost double the number of flights, which operate Patna. It is likely to host 49 daily flight departures on weekdays and 51 on Sunday, in a staggered manner, between March 25 and July 1.  Of these, two flights — one of Jet Airways to Indore, proposed from July 1, and another of Goair to Chandigarh (from May 6) — are once a week. IndiGo is likely to commence a daily direct flight to Guwahati, the capital of Assam, from March 25, while Goair proposes to connect Ahmedabad with Patna from May 1.  In increasing the number of flights, Patnaites will get direct air connectivity with Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Indore and Guwahati.
At present, Patna has direct air connectivity with Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Lucknow, Ranchi, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore and Bhopal. The flight to Bhopal, however, has been temporarily suspended and will resume on February 1.  Almost all airlines operating here have proposed to increase the number of flights. Indigo, which has 10 scheduled departures daily in the ongoing winter schedule, effective December 1, has proposed to more than double its flights to 21 from Patna.  Goair, which has six departures, has proposed to increase its daily scheduled flights to 12.  Jet Airways, which has three departures now, has proposed to hike its flights to five daily departures on weekdays and seven on Sunday.  Air India, which has three departures, proposes to double its flights to Patna, with the last aircraft of the day reaching here from Ranchi at 11.05pm. The aircraft will make a night halt and leave here the next morning at 7am. Read More…
