Low-cost airline Indigo's first Delhi-Dharamshala flight flagged off

Scindia said site clearance has been given for a Greenfield airport at Mandi. A plan is also under way to extend the Dharamshala airport runway, now short at a length of 4,500 feet, the strip likely running over-the-river which will be a delightful and butterflies experience at the same time for the fliers. Only smaller turboprop airplanes operate from here currently with a capacity of carrying 50 passengers, raising the air fares.

NEW DELHI, March 28: Union Minister for Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya Scindia, Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation Gen VK Singh and Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Anurag Thakur flagged off IndiGo's Dharamshala flight (Delhi-Dharamshala-Delhi flight) on Sunday.

Thakur proposed a larger airport for Dharamshala, saying, "Currently passengers coming to Himachal Pradesh from all over India have to go to Delhi and then board connecting flights to the State. A larger airport will provide direct seamless connectivity to passengers."

As the airport runway is short at a length of 4,500 feet, only smaller turboprop airplanes operate from here. IndiGo is using its ATR 72–600 planes to fly here.

Scindia said site clearance has been provided for a Greenfield airport at Mandi.

As per the schedule, there will be daily Indigo flights from Delhi to Dharamshala at 6.40 am and the return flight will be at 8.45 am. Another flight will operate on Delhi-Dharamshala-Delhi route on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 11 am and 2.55 pm.

The Indigo flight began on Sunday. Spicejet and Alliance Air are already flying to Dharamshala. The average flying time from Delhi to Dharamshala is 1 hour and 30 minutes. The distance between Delhi and Dharamshala by road is 484 km.

Low-cost Indigo is the leader in Indian domestic aviation.

The airline had on February 9 announced that it will launch a Delhi-Dharamshala flight on March 26. Dharamshala is its 78th domestic destination, marking the airline’s entry in Himachal Pradesh. It is also IndiGo’s 104th overall destination in the 6E network.

Dharamshala a tourist centre

Kangra airport, also known as Gaggal airport, is the airport for Dharamshala. It is at a distance of 15 km from the centre of Dharamshala. From the airport to the town one can catch a bus or a cab. There are already flights of other airlines operating from Kangra airport to Delhi and Chandigarh. The airport offers round-the-clock arrivals and departures from across the country.

Dharamshala, a Buddhist centre where spiritual leader the Dalai Lama resides, is also a well-known summer Capital of Himachal Pradesh. It has two distinct parts - Lower Dharamshala which is the commercial market district and the Upper Dharamshala consisting of McLeodganj and Forsythganj. Dharamshala is also an ideal starting point for hikes and treks in Dhauladhar mountain range.

The Tsuglagkhang Complex, Namgyal Monastery, St. John in the Wilderness, Tibet Museum, Bhagsu Naag temple, Naddi Hill Point, Mcleodganj, BhagsuNag waterfall and Dal Lake are among the scenic and historic tourist attractions in Dharamshala.

Dharamshala is also home to the world's highest international cricket stadium at 4,780 feet above sea level.


WHAT TO DO, WHEN... : IndiaTravelTimes does not guarantee the authenticity of the video (above) of the episode of the flight turbulence at Durgapur airport on May 1, yet this is being put out with a view to familiarising the ordinary fliers with such probabilities lest they are caught unawares and fail to react rationally to handle such terrible situations. The 'eternity' can last up to 15 minutes. Tighten your belts, believe in your pilot and shift your thoughts to reduce disabling anxieties! Rest assured, the aircraft can rock and fall but not more than a hundred feet anyway.

During the event, nearly 50 other people, including bull tamers and spectators, were also injured. Jallikattu is a bull-taming sport, which has been part of the festival of Pongal in Tamil Nadu.

Whole localities are sent into quarantine in China using force if someone is symptomatic of covid. The quarantines are metal boxes set up in far away camps. The authoritarian regime is resorting to draconian methods to check a new wave of the epidemic in the country that has already locked down three cities currently. On the other hand, the US presents a contrasting scenario where in the name freedom large sections of people refuse vaccination and assault health workers who mandate the covid restrictions.

Can we ask the vaccinator, "Do you pull back the plunger and then push the vaccine? Do you Aspirate?" When the vaccination for covid started there were reports of worrisome incidents of adverse events post immunisation, the serious complaints being non-specific blood clots. These related to viral vector vaccines of human and non-human source: AstraZeneca and Janssen. How did it happen. There are various views. But here is a suggestion how simply it can be prevented.

Marking a fierce but interesting competition among the billionaires, adventure specialist Richard Branson launched commercial space travel from his 'Spaceport America' on Sunday, pipping the world's richest man, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, to the post, becoming the early bird to fly to the edge of space as the first private space tourist nine days earlier than his rival. Although he did not cross the Karman line.

President Biden has signed the Juneteenth National Independence Day Bill making June 19 a federal public holiday to commemorate the symbolic end of chattel slavery in the US.

While the rationalists debunk the episode as a ploy to make up for the losses in offerings during the corona lockdown, the believers stick to their claim, they have seen it after all! The claim of Shankaralinga temple resembles the miracle of Ganesha drinking milk in Delhi way back in 1995. Although they belong to two different branches of science.
