Tier II cities in Ra­jasthan get bet­ter con­nec­tiv­ity

Business Traveller (India) - - UPFRONT -

Spice­Jet has launched ser­vices from Jaisalmer on Oc­to­ber 29 on­wards, mak­ing it the first air­line to equip the city with air con­nec­tiv­ity.

The low-cost air­line con­nects Jaisalmer to Delhi and Jaipur and de­ploys its Bom­bardier Q400 on these routes.

The Jaipur-Jaisalmer route is the fourth sec­tor un­der UDAN or the re­gional con­nec­tiv­ity scheme for Spice­Jet.

“Scheme UDAN has been on a fab­u­lous pur­suit of bring­ing the un-served and un­der-served air­ports on the na­tional flight map and tak­ing fly­ing to the masses. The fact that Jaisalmer will now be of­fered air con­nec­tiv­ity af­ter a wait of 16 long years speaks vol­umes for UDAN,” says Shilpa Bha­tia, the chief sales and rev­enue of­fi­cer at Spice­Jet.

Apart from this, Air In­dia has be­gun flights be­tween Bikaner and Delhi (Septem­ber 26), mak­ing an­other city of Ra­jasthan ac­ces­si­ble to tourists by air. Op­er­ated by Al­liance Air, Air In­dia’s ATR72 serves the route.
