The flight connectivity from Hindon airport to Hubballi Airport will begin from November 6.

After the first flight to Pithoragarh, Hindon Airport will cater to Dehradun, Hubli, Shimla, Faizabad, Gulbarga, Nasik, and Coonoor, among other popular destinations.

Hindon airbase is the oldest airbase in the country.

Hindon airport, which is around 40 km from the IGI Airport in Delhi, belongs to the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the AAI has developed a civil enclave inside it. The Indian Air Force permitted the use of the airbase for civilian flights under regional air connectivity scheme UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik). UDAN seeks to connect unserved and underserved airports as well as make flying more affordable.
