"The flight reached Andal airport around 7.30 a.m. The return flight AI-756, a 122-seater Airbus A319 aircraft, left Durgapur at 8.25 a.m.," the official said.
Air India first introduced its services to Durgapur in May 2015 but it was withdrawn in June 2016.
The airline authority said the flight will currently operate four days a week, noting that special promotional fare has evoked a lot of enthusiasm among the passengers.
"It was discussed and decided that the flight services will resume on this auspicious day. It's great to see that all the seats were filled. The current trend is exciting for the service providers," he added.
