After 18-month gap, Pune-Nashik flight to resume on October 27

Pune: After a gap of 18 months, flight connectivity between Pune and Nashik will resume this Diwali. Alliance Air, a subsidiary of Air India, will start its flight between the two cities from October 27. The air service had been suspended since Air Deccan cancelled its operations one-and-a-half-year ago.
The service will start under the central government’s Regional Connectivity Scheme, UDAN. Pune airport Director Ajay Kumar said that slots have been given to the Alliance Air.
Under UDAN scheme, in the first registration, Air Deccan had started the Nashik-Pune-Nashik flights. However, due to some internal issues of the airline, the service took off but remained haphazardly run and received lukewarm response. Three months after starting the service in March 2018, the airline stopped the service citing lack of occupancy. Later, the airline withdrew from the scheme.
