After inauguration, ‘uncertainty’ looms over flight operations at Jharsuguda airport

Jharsuguda: Uncertainty prevailed over the flight operations by Air Odisha at the Veer Surendra Sai (VSS) Airport, which was recently inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi here under UDAN (Udega Desh ka Aam Nagrik) scheme.
The cancellation of three flights scheduled to and from the Jharsuguda airport on Tuesday raised big question among the air passengers for the flight services by Air Odisha.
Three days after operationalisation of Odisha’s second major airport, not a single flight landed at the airport on Tuesday as per the schedules.
Following inauguration of the airport, three flights were scheduled to take off daily from Jharsuguda to Raipur, Ranchi and Bhubaneswar excluding Sunday.
However, three flights were cancelled on Tuesday at the Jharsuguda airport due to repair work, stated the VSS Airport Director PK Chouhan.
