Talks with airlines for flight operations from Jharsuguda: Pradhan

Bhubaneswar: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan Wednesday said talks are on with major airlines for flight operations from the Jharsuguda Airport, a day after chief minister Naveen Patnaik requested the prime minister for introduction of new flights from the airport.

Talks are on with major airlines – Air India, IndiGo and SpiceJet – for operations from the Jharsuguda Airport, the Petroleum minister, who hails from the state, told reporters here.

Patnaik on Tuesday in a letter to the PM had also drawn his attention to Air Odisha “abruptly suspending” its flight operation from Jharsuguda Airport since October 6.

Air Odisha got the tender for flight operation from Jharsuguda Aiport after the first round of bidding under the regional air connectivity scheme the Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik (UDAN).
