Regional Flights to 4 Cities Including Kannur and Hubli from Hindon Airbase Expected by October

If all goes well, passengers to Kannur in Kerala, Hubli in Karnataka, Nashik in Maharashtra and Pithoragarh in Uttarakhand will have a direct air link from Ghaziabad by October-end.

Officials of the Ghaziabad district administration are hopeful that the regional flights from the Hindon airbase can start from October this year. The airbase has been selected for operation of regional flights under the regional connectivity scheme of the Union ministry of civil aviation. The scheme will provide relief to the overburdened Delhi airport.

Ghaziabad district magistrate Ritu Maheshwari has been nominated as the nodal officer for taking decisions on lease agreement with farmers and other infrastructure facilities, which are to be developed as part of the project. She said a draft of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been finalised and sent to the state government.
