Trujet readies blueprint to connect temple cities

Vijayawada: Regional carrier Trujet has prepared a blueprint to connect various temple cities in India and create a niche market in temple tourism. Plans have been chalked out to extend its operations to Visakhapatnam-Hyderabad and Vijayawada-Kadapa shortly.

Announcing the launch of operations between Hyderabad and Vijayawada on Sunday, Turbo Megha Airways Private Limited managing director Vankayalapati Umesh said the company had mapped various temple tourism circuits that could be connected with direct flights. “We have already connected Hyderabad with Tirupati and Aurangabad to facilitate pilgrims visiting Tirumala and Shirdi respectively in a hassle-free manner,” he said.

Similarly, the company is contemplating connecting Vijayawada with Aurangabad and Kochi to enable devotees to reach Shirdi and Sabarimala respectively with ease. “We are presently equipped with two 72-seater ATR72-500 aircraft, and one more will be inducted in the same class by this month end and one each in November and December,” he said.
