Kingfisher Airlines, used to operate 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.[2] It ceased operations to Shimla in September 2012.

On April 27, 2017, commercial service was resumed by Alliance Air, the regional subsidiary of Air India.[3]
