Direct Prayagraj-Indore flightlaunched, min greets passengers

Prayagraj: With the landing of an IndiGo flight from Indore in the city on Sunday, Prayagraj has direct air connectivity with 12 major cities of the country. The direct flight between Indore and Prayagraj will not only benefit businessmen, but also boost religious tourism between the two cities. On the maiden flight, 81 passengers arrived at the civil enclave of Prayagraj. The passengers coming from Indore were given a warm welcome at the airport by UP minister for civil aviation Nand Gopal Gupta ‘Nandi’ and BJP member of Parliament from Phulpur, Keshari Devi Patel.

Gupta, who welcomed the passengers, said that the Civil Enclave of Prayagraj is setting new records for the past three years. “In a very short span of time, 12 important cities have got direct air connectivity with the Sangam city. In the coming days, direct air services would start from Prayagraj for some more cities. Before the formation of the Yogi government, there was only one flight from Prayagraj to Delhi, but now there are flights to 12 cities,” he added.

After the construction of the new terminal here, a record was also made last month for the movement of more than 10 lakh passengers in one year. Earlier, Gupta and Patel also cut a cake to celebrate the occasion.

On its journey to Indore, the ATR class flight from Prayagraj took off at 12.09 pm and reached Indore at 2.08 pm. From there, the plane departed for Prayagraj at 2.45 pm and landed at the Civil enclave, Bamrauli, at 4.32 pm.

On this occasion, every passenger coming from Indore was welcomed by Gupta and Patel with flowers. Regional director of Airport Authority of India (AAI), Anchal Prakash and IndiGo staff were present on the occasion.
