Jharkhand to Start Own Airline

Jamshedpur: Taking cue from the booming airline industry, which has been showing keen interest in operating in Jharkhand skies, the government is making plans to enter the aviation business.
If things go as per plan, Jharkhand could well be the first state in India to start an airline service within its prominent destinations for the benefit of the public. The civil aviation secretary J.B. Tubid confirmed that the state government is planning to start such a service.
The government has already made the initial move by inviting tenders from business houses for the purchase of as many as six flying machines.
The tender calls for two twin-engine helicopters, a seven-seater (including two seats for airline staff) and a 14-seater (including two seats for airline staff) flying machine. A 11-seater twin-engine turbo-propped aeroplane (including two seats for airline staff) and a four-seater single-engine aeroplane (including one seat for the staff), makes up the rest of the tender notification.
