Patna: The SpiritAir India would be launching its charter flight between Patna and Jamshedpur starting April 2 while ceasing its operation between Patna and Kolkata and Purnia and Kolkata due to insufficient demand, officials said.

The four-seater Cessna 172 Skyhawk plane, however, would continue its service between Patna and Purnia as before, SpiritAir Sales Manager Shyamal Chakravarty said.

While the Patna-Jamshedpur flight is one and a half hour long, the distance between Patna and Purnia would be covered in one hour.

Chakravarty said that the fare between Patna and Jamshedpur and Patna and Purnia is Rs. 1,999 though this rate is available only at the counters at Patna, Purnia, and Jamshedpur airports. The cost for Jamshedpur-Purnia flight, however, is Rs. 3,998.

The bi-weekly service between Patna and Jamshedpur would operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays leaving Jamshedpur at 8:40 am and arriving at Patna at 10:10 am.

Plane for Jamshedpur from Patna would take off at 1:20 pm arriving at Jamshedpur at 2:50 pm.

For those flying to Purnia, the plane would take off from Patna Airport at 10:30 am arriving in Purnia at 11:30 am. Return flight to Patna starts at 11:55 am arriving at Patna Airport at 12:55 pm.
