August 21, 2015 (Airportchandigarh.com): Finally the much awaited announcement is here - Modi will inaugurate the unnamed international airport terminal at Mohali on September 11.
After landing in Chandigarh, Modi will attend two other events before inaugurating the airport. Modi will be visiting PGI hospital to attend the convocation and also the Chandigarh Housing Board project in Sector 63.
International flights may not start immediately after the new terminal is operational. In fact, long distance flights may not start for another two years because the airport runway is currently not fully upgraded to handle wide-bodied aircrafts. However, It is expected that flights to Dubai may start soon. The domestic flights will continue to operate as usual from the existing terminal until the new terminal is fully prepared which may take about four more weeks.
