No flights from Jharsuguda for a week

Jharsuguda: The recently-inaugurated Veer Surendra Sai Airport (VSSA) at Jharsuguda has disappointed people of western Odisha with no operation of flights under the UDAN scheme in the past one week.

Even three weeks after the commissioning of Odisha’s second major airport, air passengers hardly got the flight services to other destinations from here.

After its inauguration, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had released a schedule for flight operations from the airport.

However, passengers are still waiting to get services.

As per the schedule, the flight services to Bhubaneswar, Raipur and Ranchi from Jharsuguda were to be operated six days in a week excluding Sunday.

The regular schedule for flight operations had commenced from September 24.

Reports said that not a single flight by the Air Odisha has been operated in the past seven days. Rather, the airport has turned into a point of amusement for public.
