Air India flight at Bhuntar Airport

Flights between Delhi and Kullu resumed from September 15, 2013 onward as Air India started it’s flight operations on the Delhi-Kullu sector. Resumption of flights on the Delhi-Kullu sector is a welcome relief for tourists, hoteliers and other stake holders in the tourism sector of Manali valley.

Air India flights were earlier discontinued from July 1 onward due to bad weather and fog which affected the safe landing of the aircraft at the Kullu airport.

Local hoteliers and travel agents have expressed joy over the resumption of the flight to Kullu and demanded that more private airlines be asked to operate flights on the sector so that the competition brings down air fares in the sector.

Delhi – Kullu flight will be operated 6 days a week and there will be no flight on Tuesday of the week. The flight will leave at 6 am from Delhi and reach Manali at 7.20 am. Return flight from Kulu will leave at 7.40 am and reach Delhi at 9 am.
