Private airlines will operate two additional flights from Delhi and Mumbai to Chandigarh to cater to high demands of air tickets by the cricket fans keen on watching World cup semi-final between India and Pakistan at Mohali.

Jet Airways and Kingfisher will operate an additional flight each from Delhi and Mumbai to Chandigarh, which is adjacent to Mohali, on Wednesday.

Kingfisher Airlines will also operate an additional flight each from Mumbai and Delhi on Wednesday.

"Kingfisher Airlines will be operating an additional return flight from Mumbai and Delhi to Chandigarh to meet the demand for the World Cup semi-final being held at Mohali," a Kingfisher spokesperson said.

The demand for additional flights was felt after existing scheduled flights were sold out even as the fare on the usually lull sector shot up dramatically last week.

Meanwhile, Chandigarh airport authorities have been receiving a large number of requests for landing permission from VVIPs and corporate heads coming to watch the Indo-Pak match in private aircraft.

The airport does not have enough parking space. It can park only three civilian aircraft, besides the commercial flights.

The authorities have asked the private operators to de-board the passengers and go either to Amritsar, Ludhiana, Patiala, Delhi or Mumbai to park the aircraft.
