Bhubaneswar: Union civil aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has said direct flight services between Bhubaneswar and Jaipur will commence from November 2.
“I hope that the connectivity between Temple City, Bhubaneswar and Pink City, Jaipur would not only enhance tourist footfall but would also provide a boost to economic activities in both the states,” PTI quoted Scindia as saying.
The Odisha government has been demanding for flight services on the route to attract tourists to the eastern state.
Union minister for Education and Skill Development, Dharmendra Pradhan had on September 17 written to Scindia, seeking his intervention to commence flight services between the two cities, reported PTI.
“The Odisha govt will provide Rs 75,000 per round trip to IndiGo Airline for initiating direct flight which will further strengthen air connectivity and boost tourism,” said Odisha CM’s office in a statement.
