The Bengal government on Monday gave its nod for resumption of daily direct flight services between Kolkata and Delhi, an official statement said. "Daily direct flights in Kolkata-Delhi sector allowed with immediate effect," a statement issued by the state Information and Cultural Department said.
Currently, Kolkata-New Delhi flights are available thrice a week — Monday, Wednesday and Friday, airport officials said. The state government had in July imposed a ban on direct flights from six metros with high COVID-19 prevalence, including New Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai.
Later, the restrictions were relaxed and the government allowed flights to arrive from these cities thrice a week.
