International flight services from Tirupati, Vijayawada airports yet to take off

Over three years have passed since the airport in Tirupati was accorded 'international' status but it has not logged even one international flight so far.
In May 2016, the Andhra Pradesh government announced that international flights would take off from Tirupati International Airport "within a month or two."
However, no airliner is said to be inclined to operate international flights from this famous temple town.
Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had announced last month direct flight services to Singapore from the state capital Amaravati (Vijayawada airport) would be launched by July 7 but that deadline has now been missed.
