Air India has decided to introduce two additional flights for Jammu and Srinagar from the national Capital to cater to the heavy rush of tourists going to Jammu and Kashmir during the summer.

“The new flights between Delhi-Jammu and Delhi-Srinagar sectors would remain operational between April 20 and June 15 in addition to scheduled daily flights,” an Air India spokesperson said.

This has been done to meet the growing demand of seats in the forthcoming summer holidays and LTC passenger rush, he added.

From April 20, Air India would be offering 3,052 seats per week from Delhi to Jammu and back by operating an additional flight AI 9621 that would leave Delhi at 7 a.m. and arriving in Jammu at 8:15 a.m. In return, AI 9622 would leave from Jammu at 7:45 a.m. and arrive in Delhi at 10 a.m., the official said.

On Delhi-Srinagar-Delhi sector, the national carrier would be operating an additional direct flight AI 9623 that would leave Delhi at 5:55 a.m. and reach Srinagar at 7:15 a.m. -PTI
