AAI seeks change in flight schedule

Pune: The Airports Authority of India (AAI) wants Air Deccan, set to start operations from Solapur, to change its Mumbai flight schedule to daytime.
This comes ahead of the second round of bidding for the unserved and under-served airports and airstrips as part of the Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) in August.
"The Air Deccan from Solapur to Mumbai is scheduled ar 5:30pm. The 70-seater flight will reach Solapur at 4:35pm from the first week of September. Many people, particularly from the business community, in Solapur have been seeking a change in the timing. They say the timing will not be beneficial for their businesses. The AAI has got several letters. We will hold a discussion with Air Deccan in August and request them to change the schedule," Solapur airport director Santosh Kaulke told TOI.
