The second phase of operations will begin on October 10 and conclude on October 14. Arrival time of phase II flights from Madinah to Mangalore airport would be 1.00 pm.

Mangalore International Airport director JT Radhakrishna said the added advantage for Haj pilgrims this year is that A-320 aircraft will be used in the direct flight to Madinah and passengers need not change aircraft like in the previous year where they had to go to Madinah via Calicut.
