Jaipur: Jaipur Airport will operate four new flights to three popular destinations – Bengaluru, Chennai and Pune from June 1. The airfare for these flights will be cheaper as they will be operated in the night. The airport doesn’t operate flights in the night currently due to the ongoing renovation work.
