Improved air connectivity to Aurangabad soon

Aurangabad: In a major boost to the air connectivity of Aurangabad, the ministry of state for civil aviation has shot a letter to Aurangabad MP Imtiaz Jaleel announcing the improvement in air connectivity to the city. When contacted, Jaleel said, “Improving air connectivity of the city was one of the electoral promises and am grateful to the MoS for considering our city’s genuine pea.”
With the winding up of Jet Airways, the connectivity of the city had taken a serious hit. Moreover, with the starting of airport at Shirdi, even some of the budget airlines operating from the city shifted to Shirdi, further denting the air connectivity to the city which is also the administrative, medical, educational and industrial capital of the region.
Responding to several rounds of meetings and written communication from Jaleel, MoS Hardeep Puri in his letter, stated “with a view to enhance air services to/from Aurangabad a meeting was at ministry of civil aviation held on July 10, 2019 attended by representatives of airline operators and CII Marathwada zonal council. I am glad to inform you that Air Asia, Spice Jet, Indigo and Zoom Air have shown keen interest in starting flights from to/from Aurangabad effective winter schedule 2019.”
