According to a top official, Srinagar International Airport has planned to conduct over 30 additional aircraft services this summer, bringing the total number of flight services to around 60.

Administrative Secretary Civil Aviation Department Ranjan Prakash Thakur stated that additional in-flight movements will be added to the summer schedule beginning March 27th.

“We will be operating with more flights during the summer schedule. We’ll take it from 32 to roughly 60. Of this figure, at least 50 to 55 will operate in to and fro manner, making it to around 100 flight movements a day,” Thakur said.

Thakur also stated that the initiative’s goal is to attract more tourism to the valley, which will benefit the economy in the long run.

“The valley is experiencing a good number of tourists during what was previously referred to as the ‘offseason,’ and now that we have lowered the air price, more people are showing interest in visiting the valley,” Thakur added.

Srinagar Airport has recently begun night flight services and expanded its flight movements to international destinations as well.

Notably, Union Home Minister Amit Shah launched the direct flight between Srinagar and Sharjah on October 23 of last year.

An international cargo terminal facility at Srinagar International Airport was established earlier this month in order to give a thrust to exports.
