The air connectivity between Himachal Pradesh capital and New Delhi resumed on Monday after a gap of almost two years.Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, while connecting virtually, launched regular flights by flagging off the new ATR-42-600 aircraft of Alliance Air from the Shimla airport at Jubbarhatti.
