NGO men attend aviation event in Dubai

Amritsar: In an attempt to boost international connectivity for Punjab and neighboring states from Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee (SGRDJ) International Airport, Amritsar, Fly Amritsar, a local NGO, participated in an international event for route development forum ‘CONNECT Middle East, Africa and India 2019 (MEIA 2019)’ in Dubai. More than 40 international airlines and airports participated in the event. Fly Amritsar convener and Amritsar Vikas Manch’s overseas secretary Sameep Singh Gumtala, along with AVM secretary Yogesh Kamra, attended the event in Dubai. “The aim of the meetings was to enable connection (direct/transit) options from Amritsar to Birmingham, London, Toronto, Vancouver, Milan, Frankfurt, Muscat, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Kuwait, Bahrain, Dammam,” Gumtala said. Many of the Gulf carriers shared that non-inclusion of Amritsar in bilateral air agreements between the two countries was the main hindrance for them and they were willing to operate direct flights to Amritsar immediately after getting the flying rights for starting flights to Amritsar.
