Jeypore airstrip to take wings in 2019

Jeypore: Hopes to launch regular flights from the Jeypore airstrip soars high as the construction work nears completion. The construction work is likely to be completed by December and the airstrip will become operational in January, an official report said.

Earlier, Koraput Collector had visited the airstrip and taken stock of the ongoing project work.
The airstrip was included in the Centre’s UDAN scheme, and its expansion was handed over to the Roads and Buildings Department.

UDAN is a regional airport development and regional connectivity scheme of the Centre aimed at making air travel affordable and widespread for the common citizen for national economic development, job growth and air infrastructure of all regions and state in the country.

After Bhubaneswar and Jharsuguda, the Jeypore airstrip will be the third to get the civil aviation airport tag in the state.

Flights from Jeypore will connect Bhubaneswar, Visakhapatnam, Raipur and Hyderabad as of now.
