February 10, 2018 (Airportchandigarh.com): Mohali airport will remain closed from February 12, 2018 to February 26, 2018 owing to runway repairs. Since October last year the operating hours for flights had already been reduced with flights operating only between 5 am to 4 pm except Sundays with no flights.
The runway is being prepared to fly wide-bodied airplanes capable of flying to long distance destinations, like London, U.K. Currently only smaller aircrafts can use the runway which can only travel to nearby destinations like Dubai, Bangkok and Sharjah.
Passengers will be left with no choice other than using other modes of transportation like trains, taxi and buses while the airport is closed. Haryana Roadways and Punbus operate luxury buses daily on Chandigarh-Delhi route. Bookings can be done in advance online for both the operators. Many trains also operate on daily basis on the same route.
