Indore: State’s first overseas flight awaits MHA nod

Indore: Air India has completed the preparation for rolling out the state’s maiden international flight from the city under ‘hub-and-spoke’ policy to Sharjah via Mumbai. However, the national carrier is awaiting the approval from Union ministry of home affairs to start its operation, which was expected to be granted by October. Nevertheless, on domestic front, the PSU airliner is likely to roll-out three flights from city to Jaipur, Ahmedabad and Kolkata by September.

Chairman and managing director (CMD) of Air India, Ashwani Lohani, here at Indian Institute of Management (IIM) on Saturday while interacting to selected media on the sidelines of Industry Meet 2017 informed that IA wants to start international flights from tire-II cities of the country, including Indore under ‘hub-and-spoke’ policy. “I have sent a request to MHA to connect Indore to Sharjah via Mumbai under the policy. On the day the proposal gets nod from MHA, Indore will connect with Sharjah. It is difficult to say the time the permission will take to arrive, but we are hoping for the best,” Lohani said.
