Air India BLR-Hubballi-Mumbai flight begins

Air India has begun a Bengaluru-Hubballi-Mumbai service. Residents of Bengaluru looking to travel to North Karnataka and residents of Hubballi heading to BLR/Mumbai can avail this service.

Key details:
Airline: Air India
Aircraft type: A319
Frequency: 3 days a week- Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday
BLR departure 1200, arrival at Hubli; 1250
Departure from Hubli: 1325, Arrival at Mumbai: 1430

Departure from Mumbai: 1525, arrival at Hubli: 1635
Departure from Hubli: 1810, Arrival at Bengaluru: 1930

Approx fare: Rs 1500 to Rs 3000 one way from BLR to Hubli, depending on various factors

Flying to Hubli will save 6 hours/400 kms road trip otherwise needed. (Actual savings is less- consider 90 min to reach BLR airport, 90 mins for airport formalities and 1 hour flying- that is 4 hours in total, so net savings is hardly 2 hours, but if you can get the tickets at reasonable price, flying might still make good sense.

From Hubli you can take road to various attractions in Northern and central Karnataka- Dandeli, Karwar, Sirsi etc on the west side, Badami, Ihole etc on the east

Unfortunately above flight timing is not suitable for those looking for a weekend trip. You can't leave Friday evening/Saturday early morning n return Sunday night/Monday morning.

Alternate options:
Spicejet flies to Belgaum
Trujet flies to Vidhyanagar, Hampi from Hyd
