Self-made sentence:

I know that this sentence is natural when asking for information about a flight:

“Is there a flight from here to New York every week?”

However, I want to add the word “going” to modify the sentence for the reason that non-native speakers may think of this word when talking about a flight:

“Is there a flight going from here to New York every week?”

Does this sentence sound natural to you with a redundant word “going”?

    It sounds quite natural to me, but I'll mention that "from here" is also not needed in most contexts.

    Which version do you prefer?

    “Is there a flight to New York every week?”

    or

    “Is there a flight going to New York every week?”
