All’s not well, traffic nosedives at city airport


The Chandigarh international airport has the capacity to serve 50 million people and it has a catchment area that can serve seven states, says a pitch that the airport made to airlines in a bid to convince them to fly from the city.

The number of flights at the airport has dipped. At present, only 27 flights take off to 13 destinations from the airport. Two of these go to Sharjah and Dubai.

In 2017, there were about 36 flights from the airport. The passenger traffic dipped to 20.97 lakh in 2018 from nearly 21.37 lakh in 2017. Read more
