Regional Flight Link Plan Hits Air Pocket In Rajasthan


The implementation of the regional air connectivity scheme, UDAN, is facing delays in Rajasthan with operations yet to take off from at least three airports.

UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik) seeks to connect unserved and underserved airports in the country. Rajasthan has 18 state-owned airfields apart from airports owned by the Airports Authority of India (AAI), defence airfields and private airstrips.

More than six months after Kishangarh airport was inaugurated, passengers are still awaiting launch of flights to New Delhi and Jaipur. The Kota-Delhi flights launched by a private airline have also been suspended, apparently because of lack of approvals.

There is no clarity on when the proposed launch of flights from Uttarlai in Barmer to New Delhi will start. Proposed flights from Bhilwara and Sri Ganganagar to New Delhi are also yet to take off. Read More…
