Star Air takes off from Kalaburagi to Delhi Hindon
India’s Star Air began Kalaburagi, in the southern state of Karanataka, to Delhi Hindon on 18 November.
The 1,263-kilometre link is government-funded and is operated three-weekly by the carrier’s 50-seat Embraer 145s.
It is one of 16 routes operated by Star Air under India’s regional connectivity scheme.
Hindon, close to New Delhi, is a long-standing Indian Air Force base. Its passenger terminal opened in March 2019.
Star Air’s new route coincided with the year anniversary of the opening of Kalaburagi for passenger service, which was celebrated in style.
