Alliance Air to operate flights from new Kalaburagi airport to Bengaluru

Bengaluru: Alliance Air, a subsidiary of Air India, will be the first airline to operate flights from the new Kalaburagi airport to Bengaluru.
According to the airline, flights will be operated from mid-November under the Centre’s UDAN scheme. The dates for the operations will be finalised after the inauguration of the airport.
The Kalaburagi airport in North Karnataka is ready and the state government is trying to get Prime Minister Narendra Modi to inaugurate it.
Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa had said, “we have already requested the Prime Minister to give time to inaugurate Kalaburagi Airport and I will again remind him about the invitation.”
Alliance Air also plans to launch a flight connecting Hubballi with Hyderabad by November-end. “We plan to launch the first flight from Kalaburagi airport from November. This will be the first time Kalaburagi will get connected to Bengaluru by air,” said Alliance Air Chief Executive Officer C S Subbiah.
The Kalaburagi airport was constructed under Public-Private Partnership at a cost of Rs 175.5 crore and will now connect Bengaluru with the Hyderabad-Karnataka region. In August 2018, a trial landing was successfully conducted on the Kalaburagi airport runway.
