In the process, the airline made it clear its strategy was to develop regional routes in order to augment its traffic on trunk routes.
"We have plans to begin operations to Kangra, Jamshedpur, Bodhgaya, Cooch Behar, Mysore, Salem and Ludhiana in the near future. Kangra airport is ready and all clearances have been obtained for the airport at Jamshedpur which is a private airport owned by Tatas," Air Deccan's managing director G.R. Gopinath told The Indian Express
"We hope to begin operations on Kolkata-Jamshedpur, Kolkata-Bodhgaya and Chennai-Salem sectors soon," Gopinath added saying that Air Deccan was in talks with the government to begin operations at 15-odd airports across the country.
