Envoy mulls Lisbon-India direct flights

Indian Ambassador to Portugal Nandini Singla said here on Tuesday that she would discuss with Air India the commercial viability of starting direct flights from Lisbon to India.

Ms. Singla, on a short visit to the State, called on Tourism Minister Manohar Azgaonkar and discussed ways of improving tourism ties between Portugal and its erstwhile colony.

“Portugal has decided to work on the promotion of tourism with Goa and boosting the prospects of exchange programmes in the areas of sports and literature,” the Tourism Department said in a press release.

Ms. Singla urged Goa to participate in the Portugal Travel Mart and seek assistance from Portugal to conserve and preserve Goa’s rich heritage.
