Air Deccan stops four flight ops in Maharashtra cities

Nashik: Air Deccan has stopped its services in the four cities of Maharashtra from the first week of October. These routes include Mumbai-Nashik-Mumbai, Nashik-Pune-Nashik and Mumbai-Jalgaon-Mumbai.
The company confirmed stopping of its services owing to technical reasons. The private airline is also keen to shift its base from Ozar airport in Nashik to Ahmedabad, but the plan did not work out.
Air Deccan was the first airline company to kick-off its services from Nashik under Centre’s Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) in December last year.
“The airline has some payment issue with Nashik-based Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd that owns the airport. Our feedback is that it has not paid its outstanding dues to HAL for its operations from the airport,” the AAI official said.
According to the official, AAI has taken a strong note of Air Deccan to stop its services in Maharashtra and has decided to convene a meeting shortly to force the airline to re-start its services.
