Andhra’s Kurnool to be on air map from March 28

New Delhi: Andhra Pradesh got its sixth airport on Thursday with the inauguration of Kurnool Airport and flights under regional connectivity scheme (RCS) to this city will start from Sunday (March 28).

The aviation ministry said RCS-UDAN flights will link Kurnool with direct flights to Bangalore, Vishakhapatnam and Chennai. The Central and state governments will jointly share the viability gap funding on an 80:20 basis.
