AI seeks slots for Mumbai flight service from Ozar

Nashik: The state carrier Air India is keen to start a flight service connecting Nashik with Mumbai. It has written a letter to Airport Authority of India (AAI), seeking slots at Mumbai and Nashik airports to start the service connecting these two cities.
Air India said its subsidiary Alliance Air is mulling a Mumbai-Nashik-Mumbai flight and wants AAI to provide slots at Mumbai and Nashik airports.
Lok Sabha member Hemant Godse recently had a meeting with Air India chairman Ashwani Lohani on commencing flight from Ozar airport in Nashik to Hyderabad and Surat.
An apex body of industries Nashik Industries & Manufacturers' Association (NIMA) had also given a proposal to Air India for the purpose. However, the state carrier said it wants to begin with the Nashik-Mumbai as it is more viable.
