DGCA Summer Schedule of Hubballi Airport draws flak

Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has released the Summer Schedule 2024 for flight operations in India. And there is some bad news for Hubballi Airport.

According to the Summer Schedule 2024, IndiGo has not included Mumbai flight in its schedule. Mumbai flight was stopped due to severe Air traffic congestion at Mumbai Airport.

IndiGo will operate direct flights to Bengaluru (2x daily), Chennai, Delhi, Pune and Hyderabad. Delhi sector will be operated with 186-seater Airbus A320 while others will be operated with 78-seater ATR 72-600.

DGCA’s Summer Schedule will be effective from 31st March 2024 to 26th October 2024. IndiGo will operate Chennai flight on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday only.

IndiGo will operate Pune flight on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. All other flights will be operated daily.

The cancellation of the Mumbai flight and not resuming the Ahmedabad flight has received widespread backlash on social media. Many users have expressed their disappointment on Twitter.

Despite all the cancellations and frequency reductions, Hubballi Airport continues to be the third busiest in Karnataka in the FY 2023-24 and the busiest in North Karnataka as far as number of passengers is concerned.

Hubballi Airport deserves better, The airport which used to get 50,000+ passengers per month has been reduced to ~30,000 per month owing to various flight cancellations.
