The landing spot of the flight has also been marked in the runway for water salute. Where will the fire brigade vehicles be stationed on both sides of the flight and how the water will be saluted, preparations have also been made. SpiceJet is the first airline to show interest in flying from Deoghar airport. SpiceJet may have the first commercial flight after the airport's inauguration.
