Govt asks aviation ministry to resume flights from Mysuru

More than a year after Air India’s Alliance Air suspended its daily flight services to Mysuru airport, the state government has written to Civil Aviation Ministry to connect flights from Mysuru to other cities such as Mumbai, Goa and Hyderabad. The Air India had only operated fights from Bengaluru to Mysuru and there was poor response.

The Mandakalli airport was recently in the news for facilitating the operations of Indian Air Force’s Boeing C-17 Globemaster III to transport currency notes to various destinations in India following demonetisation. The airport that was neglected by successive governments without any concrete expansion plans suddenly shot to fame after it became the nerve centre of currency transport.

In 2015, the Air India, which received financial incentives from Karnataka Tourism Department, had started its operations on September 3 and continued till November 17, 2015. When Air India was operating flights, most of the times it carried just one or two passengers.
