Flight service from Salem airport to commence next month

Salem: In all probability flight service from Salem airport under the Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) of the Ministry of Civil Aviation is likely to commence by next month.

G.K. Chaukiyal, Executive Director (RCS) at Airports Authority of India (AAI), in an e-mail message to K. Mariappan, president of the Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Salem, has said that the Hyderabad-based Turbo Megha Airways Private Limited has intimated the AAI of commencing the flight service from Salem airport in the first week of December. Air Odisha is likely to commence its operation from Salem airport by the middle of February next year.

It may be recalled that the AAI has already signed MoUs with these flight operators.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation only a few days ago had changed the status of Salem Airport to “served airport” from “underserved and unserved” status, to enable the introduction of flight service.
