Pvt airlines to add Rajkot in summer plans

Rajkot: City is set to get comparatively better air connectivity in the coming months starting March end. A few private airline operators want to add some destinations from Rajkot in their summer schedule which will start from March 28.

SpiceJet is in talks with the airport authority to start a flight for Hyderabad from May, while they are already starting a daily flight for Bengaluru from February 24. This is the first time in Rajkot’s airport history that the commercial capital of Saurashtra will get air connectivity for south Indian cities. The IndiGo airlines too is in talks to start flight for four destinations.

Talking to TOI Digant Borah said, “They are in talks to start operation for Hyderabad, but we are awaiting their confirmation mail. There are other operators who want to add some more destinations from Rajkot. The airport is small, but I told my headquarters and flight operators that we are ready to tackle air traffic for the entire day. We have only asked for 20 to 30 minutes’ time in between arrival and departure of an aircraft. It will be cleared in a few days as to how many flights will operate from Rajkot in the summer schedule.”
