The International Airport at Chandigarh is again in news as Air India has just announced a direct flight between Chandigarh & Singapore. The new flight would be operated by Air India under its low fare international brand “Air India Express”.
Chandigarh – Singapore will be the third international flight from Chandigarh after Air India’s Chandigarh – Sharjah and Indigo’s Chandigarh – Dubai flight. A lot of people from the city of Chandigarh and neighboring states of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh go to Singapore on tourist visa for their vacations. Apart from this, a lot of business takes place between Singapore and these North Indian states. To cater to these segment of people and to help them travel between Chandigarh and Singapore, Air India has announced a special direct flight from the Chandigarh International Airport.
