Shimla Airport Wikipedia
Shimla Airport (IATA: SLV, ICAO: VISM) is an airport located in Jabarhatti, 22 kilometres (14 mi) from Shimla in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.
The airport was constructed by cutting down a mountaintop and leveling the area to form the single runway. The small apron has space for two small aircraft (Dornier Do 228) to park simultaneously. The small terminal can handle 50 persons for arriving flights, but only 40 for departing flights.
Kingfisher Airlines, operating the sole daily flight from Delhi, could not carry more than 28 passengers on its return journey because of load restrictions imposed on the aircraft due to Shimla's high altitude. It ceased operations to Shimla in September 2012.
Normal operations resumed from 9 June 2016
