Govt invites bids for flights on 4 routes

Chandigarh: Haryana’s version of the Centre’s UDAN (Uday Desh ka Aam Nagrik) scheme for connecting un-served or under-served airports is ready for take-off, with the state Civil Aviation Department all set to invite bids from airlines and airline operators to fly on four routes.

This comes on the back of delay in starting Hisar-Delhi and Hisar-Chandigarh flights by a bidder selected by the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation, prompting the state government to woo operators by offering incentives given under the UDAN scheme.

Taking a cue from Rajasthan and Gujarat, the Haryana Government will invite bids for four routes — Hisar-Jaipur-Hisar, Hisar-Chandigarh-Hisar, Hisar-Dehradun-Hisar and Hisar-Jammu-Hisar.
Under this proposal approved by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, the state government will offer free landing, parking, including night parking to aircraft, and other facilities at the Hisar airport at no charge.
