No flight will operate from the Chandigarh International Airport between May 12 and 31, when the second phase of the runway repair will take place.
After finishing the second phase of repairing, the runway length will extend from 7,200 to 10,400 feet. This upgradation would facilitate long flights from Chandigarh to destinations like Canada, Europe, USA and other destinations, a spokesperson of the Chandigarh International Airport Limited (CHIAL) said today.
"During this period, no flight will operate from Chandigarh. There will not be any further closure after May 31, 2018," he said.
The first phase of repairing took place from February 12 to 26.
For the past six months, the flights have been suspended every Sunday and will change from July 1, the spokesperson added.
"From July 1, on Sundays, the flights will operate between 1 pm to 6:30 pm," he said.
