Air Deccan hits snag in Jharkhand

Ranchi : The Jharkhand government’s move to invite a private carrier to connect this state capital with New Delhi has run into rough weather over the flight timings and funding.
The aim was to have a flight that would reach New Delhi in the morning and return in the evening, allowing ministers, businessmen and officials to attend to work in the national capital.
Six companies put in bids and the low-cost, private carrier Air Deccan was selected by the state. However, the timing proposed by Air Deccan for the flight is not to the liking of the government.
According to a senior official, Air Deccan planes were to depart from Ranchi at 9.20 a.m. ‘The timing does not suit us. We want to reach New Delhi by 10 a.m.,’ the official told IANS.
To make Air Deccan’s service viable, the government had proposed to reserve 25 seats by paying for them. According to officials, Air Deccan wants that the government reserve 60 seats and pay for them.
