Air Deccan Operation Under UDAN From Shillong On A Halt

Shillong: The Air Deccan which was selected under the regional connectivity scheme, also known as UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik), to operate from Shillong, has remained a non-starter due unknown reasons.

The Air Deccan had conducted a trial run with a lot of buzz  from the Umroi airport on April 25  this year when an 18-seater aircraft landed on the tarmac at Shillong Airport  marking the start of low-cost carrier Air Deccan’s operations to and from the facility at Umroi  but the services have been stopped since May  10  due to unknown reasons.

Under the Udan scheme, Air Deccan was selected to operate from Shillong and  the air fares are capped at Rs 2,500 per person for an hour’s flight to Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities in which the government will provide subsidy for flying with such low fares.
