Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - Tale Spin -

“Peo­ple in rub­ber san­dals will now also fly” was the catchy re­frain as an ATR took off from Jab­barhatti airstrip near Shimla for Delhi, thus sym­bol­i­cally in­au­gu­rat­ing UDAN ser­vices. How­ever, there was ob­vi­ously some dis­con­nect with the next line which read “ear­lier, air travel was meant only for the raja-ma­haraja and elite class”. The ATR be­longed to the Air In­dia sub­sidiary which long has had the ‘Ma­haraja’ as its sym­bol.
