It is expected that the 2011 winter flight season at Mumbai airport will see an increase in direct flights to Delhi.

DNA reports that the recent repairs to Mumbai domestic airport’s runway led to a decrease in flight services. However, many airlines are predicting once the work has been completed they will increase the number of flights offered to meet the rise in demand from travellers.

An official from Kingfisher Airlines explained that one of the two runways at Mumbai was out of action which led to a reduction in the carrier’s service over recent months.

However, he added: “But looking at the huge demand on this route, we are going to start two extra flights soon.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the national carrier Air India also added that it has begin holding talks to start offering flights to Delhi from Mumbai although it has not yet reached a firm decision.

Mumbai’s airport, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, is located 25kms from the main centre of the city.
