Odisha-Middle East Air Connectivity Hampered By Bilateral Traffic Rights

Bhubaneswar: Even though different airliners are approaching the Biju Patnaik International Airport (BPIA) authorities to begin flight operations between Middle Eastern countries and Odisha, it has not been possible till now as the bilateral traffic rights of the Aviation Ministry have posed a major hindrance for its implementation.

As per reports, flights services can be taken up between the Middle Eastern and European countries only after getting the bilateral traffic agreement from the Centre.

Sources said as Bhubaneswar Airport does not possess the rights, it has not been able to start the operations between these countries.
The BPIA authorities recently shot a letter to the Centre’s concerned department to grant the bilateral rights.
