Soon, a direct flight between Delhi and Ludhiana will start, using a large charter 19-seater aircraft

<p>The lengthy wait for direct air service between Ludhiana and Delhi NCR seems to be coming to an end. According to reports, the private airline that has been given the route has finished all the requirements to start operating flights at the Sahnewal airport in Ludhiana.</p>
<p>According to a report by the Times of India, Big Charter, which will be in charge of the UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik scheme) route Hindon-Ludhiana-Hindon, has delayed the commencement of flight operations till June 30 but is finished with the first processes.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-45914″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-download-2023-06-29t182253.914.jpg” alt=”” width=”1496″ height=”838″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-download-2023-06-29t182253.914.jpg 300w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-download-2023-06-29t182253.914-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1496px) 100vw, 1496px” /></p>
<p>Speaking with the source, AAI employees familiar with the situation said that the private airline had already erected a new ticket counter, backup office, and ramp area at the Sahnewal airport and had also just paid the security deposit.</p>
<p>According to AAI officials, who were reported by the TOI, “The airline has completed the necessary formalities here and, once they receive the aircraft, they will receive clearance from the Directorate General Civil Aviation (DGCA) to operate it as such permission is required to fly new aircraft.” They said that the flying operations will begin shortly but did not provide a launch date.</p>
<p>Since two years ago, there are no longer any direct flights between Ludhiana and Delhi NCR. A flight on this route didn’t take off or land since April 9 of 2021. On January 27, Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya M. Scindia told AAP MP Sanjeev Arora about the allocation of the Hindon-Ludhiana-Hindon (UDAN) route, which raised hopes for a resurrection.</p>
<p>Big Charters has been granted permission to run the Hindon-Ludhiana-Hindon UDAN route with a 19-seater type of aircraft during the UDAN 4.2 bidding round, according to Scindia. Big Charters will begin operations during the summer 2023 timetable.</p>
<p>The executive vice-president of Big Charters, Captain C. S. Randhawa, revealed to the national newspaper that they had already made the order for the aircraft, which has not yet arrived from Canada, when speaking about the delay. Randhawa said that since the Hindon airport acts as a defense airfield, they had to wait for the Ministry of Defense to give them the all-clear. When questioned about a possible start date, Randhawa suggested it may happen within the next two months.</p>
