Alliance Air – a wholly owned subsidiary of Air India – will commence commercial flight operations from the Jaffna International Airport to the Chennai International Airport, tomorrow.
Direct flights will operate, connecting the two cities, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
This flight is special in many ways.
Apart from being Alliance Air’s maiden international foray, it connects Jaffna to Chennai after a lapse of 41 years.
Chennai is among the most-visited Indian cities by foreign tourists – especially ‘health tourists’ – giving it the popular nickname: ‘India’s health capital’.
