Ludhiana’s, ”, an airplane-themed restaurant is fast becoming a popular fine-dining destination.
The project did run into trouble with the authorities as the municipal corporation did not quite know whether to consider the putting together of the plane here as a new building. The fire safety wing too gave its no-objection certificate after much controversy and delay before the place opened for business around two months ago.
“There were some questions, because it’s a new thing. But that’s all behind us now, sorted. We have a lifetime lease,” declares Jaswinder. Assistant divisional fire officer Bhupinder Singh, when contacted, says a no-objection certificate has been given to Hawai Adda: “They have got the required permissions.”

While the plane is originally a 180-seater Airbus A320, the seating capacity of the restaurant, to make it airier, has been reduced to 65. It was brought in parts from Delhi in four trucks. “Specialised engineers put it together, and then the interiors were done in about four months.” Besides the plane parked in the front lawn, the complex has a bakery, cafe and a small banquet hall. “But people mostly prefer to sit inside the plane,” Jaswinder smiles.
