Dharamshala (Himachal Pradesh): To cater to the increasing demand of the passengers, private carrier Spice Jet will start operations from the Gaggal Airport here.

The airline will soon launch a service between the town and Delhi via Chandigarh, state Urban Development, Town and Country Planning Minister Sudhir Sharma said.

Sharma said a technical survey has been already conducted by the experts for the purpose.

The move assumes significance as Dharamsala, also the seat of Tibetan spiritual guru Dalai Lama, recently emerged on the cricketing map of the country.

The last one day international of the recently concluded India-England cricket series was played at the HPCA Stadium here on January 27.

Operations at the airport were halted in October last after the only service provider Kingfisher had grounded its fleet following employee issues.
