City To Get Direct Flight To Sharjah In Winter


Putting all speculations at rest, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has stated that the international operations from Surat airport will be permitted with effect from winter season i.e October or November.

From the past couple of weeks, the airport activists, especially those affiliated with the ‘We Work for a Working Airport at Surat (WWWAS) had started a propaganda on social media announcing that Air India Express was considering launching Sharjah-Surat flight operation from August 17. Even the schedule of the flight to and from Sharjah to Surat was posted on social media, inviting curiosity by many users.

However, the newly appointed airport director Sanjay Kumar Panigrahi cleared the dust from the ongoing propaganda over Air India Express on Wednesday. Panigrahi tweeted from his official account:
