Air India to start 2nd Delhi-Dehradun flight from Jan 1

The national carrier Air India today said it would start a second flight to Dehradun from New Delhi beginning January 1.

The airline also said it will discontinue its flight from Kochi to Sharjah from January 11 and will instead fly to Dubai.

"We will operate a second flight to Dehradun from New Delhi from January 1, using a 70-seater CRJ-700 aircraft on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays," it said in a statement.

Air India already operates a daily ATR flight to the Uttarakhand capital from New Delhi.

The Dehradun flight will leave Delhi at 1230 hrs and the return flight will leave Dehradun at 1345 hrs.

The airline did not offer any reason for ending the Kochi-Sharjah-Kochi flight.
