Bhubaneswar: The maiden flight from Jharsuguda will land at Biju Patnaik International Airport BPIA) in Bhubaneswar on inaugural day of Odisha’s second major airport.

Along with flagging off Jharsuguda airport on September 22, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch Jharsuguda-Bhubaneswar flight services by Air Odisha under the regional air connectivity scheme UDAN (Udega Desh ka Aam Nagrik).

As the International Air Transport Association (IATA) airport code is yet to be issued to Jharsuguda airport, the flight tickets on Jharsuguda-Bhubaneswar route could not be booked at this moment.

Sources said that the functional issue will be met soon ahead of the operationalisation of the airport.
