Now, charter flights between Surat and Goa from Nov 11

Surat: Those planning to visit Goa for holidays will have the opportunity to fly directly from Surat.
A diamond baron is learnt to have tied up with a private airline company for operating around eight charter flights starting from November 11 to January 1.
The private airline company has sought slot allotment at Surat airport from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
Sources said it is going to be the first charter service between Surat and Goa. Sensing the business potential and the craze of Surtis for Goa, the diamond baron decided to tie up with the private airlines to provide seamless connectivity to the Surti Lalas visiting Goa on the holidays, especially during the Christmas and New Year festivals.
"A leading airline company has asked for slots at Surat airport for operating Surat-Goa flight. The airline intends to start services from November 11," said an officer at Surat airport.
