Fate Of Mysuru-Sindhudurg Flight Hinges On Feb. 5 Ticket Bookings

Mysore/Mysuru: The fate of Alliance Air flight between Mysuru and Sindhudurg in Maharashtra hinges on the occupancy of Sunday (Feb. 5). Not a single ticket was booked for the inaugural flight from either of the directions on Wednesday (Feb.1) and as such, the inaugural flight was cancelled.

Airport sources told Star of Mysore that only two or three tickets have been booked from Mysuru to Sindhudurg for the Feb. 5 flight.

 “People of Mysuru are not at all familiar with Sindhudurg and Mysuru is in no way connected with that place in Maharashtra. We have conveyed the sentiments of Mysureans to Alliance Air. If there are no encouraging bookings for the Feb. 5 flight, that too will be cancelled and the ticket money will be refunded,” Airport authorities said.

 The Mysuru-Sindhudurg flight is scheduled to be operated on Wednesdays and Sundays and will leave Hyderabad at 2 pm to reach Mysuru at 4 pm. From Mysuru, it will reach Sindhudurg at 5.30 pm. In the return direction, the plane will leave Sindhudurg at 6 pm and reach Mysuru at 7.30 pm and proceed towards Hyderabad on the  same day.

 Soon after the announcement of the Mysuru-Sindhudurg flight, the travel and tourism stakeholders in Mysuru said that the flight served no purpose. They instead demanded an additional flight to Goa and new flights to Kochi, Coimbatore, Tirupati and Shirdi to boost those sectors.

 The Mysuru-Sindhudurg-Hyderabad flight could be converted to Mysuru-Kochi-Hyderabad flight and this makes more sense and the route has the potential, they reasoned.
