Win­ning Bid |

| Ad­vo­cate Bhu­pen­dra Bhard­waj bid 2 crore plus but could not make it dur­ing the pub­lic auc­tion M um­bai may not get any more re­gional flights due to its choked air­port. Avi­a­tion sec­re­tary R N Choubey said no more slots will be given for Mum­bai un­der the re­gional con­nec­tiv­ity scheme.

“If any air­line wishes to op­er­ate a new re­gional flight to or from Mum­bai, it can do so only if it al­ready has a slot there,” Choubey said. Delhi Air­port also does not have any slots but the gov­ern­ment is try­ing to use Hin­don IAF base at Ghazi­abad for re­gional flights. Mum­bai’s air­port does not have any airstrip nearby.
