The Chandigarh International Airport is all set to get air connectivity to the capital city of Thailand i.e. Bangkok. The Chandigarh airport already had operational flights for Dubai and Sharjah and now Bangkok flight will connect the city’s residents to third international destination. The announcement of the flight was already made last month and bookings were thrown open at the same time as well. The inaugural flight from Chandigarh International airport to Bangkok will be on the 11th of December and will cost you about 14,000 Indian Rupees.
Flight Schedule of the Chandigarh-Bangkok Flight
The Chandigarh-Bangkok flight will operate three days a week from the Chandigarh International airport on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There will be no operations on the rest of the days of the week and the flights back from Bangkok will follow the same schedule structure as well. The flight from Chandigarh will leave at 2:00 PM on Mondays while the timing will change to 1:25 PM for Wednesdays and Fridays.
The Chandigarh-Bangkok flight takes a total of four hours and forty-five minutes for one way journey without having any stops in between. The return schedule from Bangkok will be 5:40 AM (Thailand Time) on all three days and it will reach the Chandigarh International Airport at 9:20 AM. CHIAL officials expressed gratitude to the passengers saying the response to the debut flight has been overwhelming and a large number of seats have already been booked in advance. If the demand increases the number of flights may be increased from Chandigarh and Bangkok.
Winter schedule might take a hit at the schedule of Chandigarh International Airport
The CHIAL authorities from the Chandigarh International Airport who is yet to start services for Bangkok have announced that they will be suspending two flights because of intense fog and weather conditions. The two cancelled flights were operational to Kullu (Bhunter Airport) and Delhi respectively.
Both the Kullu and Delhi flights were operational six days a week and were the only flights on the route. More flight schedules may take a hit after the winter season and the final decisions will be announced on December 2. We just hope that the Chandigarh-Bangkok flight remains unaffected.
