Around 11,500 seats are available every day on flights from Pune to Delhi, making it one of the most popular connections in India. Pune constitutes an important transportation hub for the state of Maharashtra, of which it is considered the cultural capital. The city’s student community contributes to Pune’s reputation as a bustling spot with vibrant nightlife and youthful spirit hovering in the air, which makes for rapidly increasing visitor numbers.
Unfortunately, Pune does not have a civil airport to handle all too many commercial flights, and all carriers are currently forced to operate from the Air Force base at Lohegaon. The airport is located around 10 kilometers from the center of Pune and takes 45 minutes on average to get to. Though a military airbase, the airport advisory committee sees the need to focus on the constant improvement of the existing facilities on a par with internationally recognized standards.
A confirmed piece of information is that there are plans to set up two duty-free shops on the airport premises, and international passengers flying in and out of Pune will soon have the opportunity to buy high-end perfumes, confectionery and liquor at bargain rates. All flights to Delhi departing from Pune Lohegaon arrive at Indira Gandhi International Airport, by far the busiest airport in South Asia as far as passenger volumes and traffic movement are concerned. The following airlines operate flights from Pune to Delhi:
1. Kingfisher – This airline is considered as a lavish class airliner and has received a five-star rating from Skytrax. Departure: 05:30 (only on Saturdays), 06.15 (daily except Saturdays), 10.40 (only on Saturdays), 11.30 (daily except Saturdays), 18.30 (daily)
Indian: along with air India, it is the flag carrier in the country. Time When Flights are bound to leave the landing field: 18.40 (on a daily basis)
3. Spicejet – This airline acquires the second place after Indigo as far as the cost-effective option is concerned. Spicejet has been rated as the best low-cost airline in South and Central Asia according to Skytrax. Departure: 7.00 (daily), 11.35 (daily except Saturdays)
Kingfisher: stands out as one of the few airlines in the world to be given by SkyTrax a five star rating. Time When Flights are bound to leave the landing field: 05:30 (only on Saturdays), 06.15 (on a daily basis not including Saturdays), 10.40 (only on Saturdays), 11.30 (day after day not including Saturdays), 18.30 (day by day)
Jet Airways: is easily the leader of the domestic flights market in India. Time When Flights are bound to leave the landing field: 10.05 (only on Saturdays), 11.05 (day after day not including Saturdays), 19.00 (each day)
6. Indian Airlines – Domestic counterpart of Air India. Departure: 18.40 (daily)
Keep abreast with the operators’ websites, though, or contact the airport’s information center if you’re about to take a last-minute flight as schedules might occasionally be changed. If a direct flight proves difficult to get (though it is a big if), a good option is to take a connection flight to Mumbai and then travel to Pune by train or taxi, which will cost you around US$ 35 and should not take more than 3 hours.
Price of a direct flight between Pune and Delhi can range from US$ 200 to US$ 400 (depending on the availability of seasonal discounts).
