Flight services from Bhubaneswar to Jaipur to begin from November 2
Flight services from Bhubaneswar to Jaipur in Rajasthan will commence from November 2.
In a letter to Union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who hails from Odisha, Union minister for civil aviation Jyotiraditya M. Scindia said IndiGo would connect these two cities and operate three flights a week.
“I hope that the connectivity between temple city Bhubanewsar and Pink City Jaipur would not only enhance tourist footfall but also provide a boost to economic activities in both the states,” Scindia wrote.
The Odisha government has also extended initial incentive to IndiGo for commencement of the flight on the Bhubaneswar-Jaipur route.
Air connectivity between these two cities is likely to attract international tourists to Odisha, said a senior official of the state government.
Pradhan had earlier on September 17 raised the demand for introduction of a flight between Jaipur and Bhubaneswar.
