Separate Bidding For Connecting Iconic Tourist Places Under UDAN Scheme: Aviation Ministry


To provide air connectivity to popular tourist sites in the country, a separate bidding would be conducted under the UDAN scheme, the Civil Aviation Ministry said today.

The template for the bidding has been prepared and the process will be initiated once the viability gap funding (VGF) from the Tourism Ministry is finalised, a Civil Aviation Ministry official, Usha Padhee, said at a tourism investors meet here.

She, however, did not elaborate on the separate bidding process.  UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik) scheme seeks to connect unserved and under-served airports as well as make flying more affordable.

Under the scheme, the Centre along with the respective state governments provides VGF. Airlines are awarded sectors through a bidding process. Read More
