A short flight to Pune. Had to leave early from Hitec city to reach Airport, used the Airport bus.

After alighting the bus, went straight to the departure entrance. The security checked my itinerary and identification document and let me in.
I was able to select the seat for this flight while booking the ticket.

Arrival and Exit
Pune being military airport, didn't take any more pic or video. Landed smoothly into Pune. Aircraft was docked to aerobridge. All passenger except those heading to Goa disembarked.
I didn't have any check-in bag as out in few mins. While waiting outside, Spicejet to Sharjah was departing. Got picked outside airport and headed off for lunch.
Hope you enjoyed the trip. Thanks for reading.
End of Trip
Hyderabad - HYD
Mumbai - BOM
Air India was the airline of choice as I flew with them from Mumbai. Flight departed on time, being a short flight of an hour, lack of entertainment wasn't a issue, catering was tea with biscuits which was fine for the time of the day. Hyderabad airport is long drive out of the city limits, had to start early to catch the flight. Pune being a military airport is a small terminal. As I was travelling without bag, exit was quick.
