UDAN

Aviation officials will soon embark on inspections of airfields at 64 new destinations set to find a place on India’s aviation map under the government’s regional connectivity scheme.

Teams comprising officers from the Airports Authority of India (AAI) and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) would visit the 64 unserved and under-served airports for which bids had been received in the second round of bidding as part of the UDAN scheme. Their task would be to ascertain if the airports were ready to cope with commercial flight operations.

“We are preparing a team of AAI and DGCA officers. The letters were sent this week that they should form teams and go visit these airports,” a senior official at Ministry of Civil Aviation told The Hindu.
