AI opens booking for Shimla-New Delhi flight under UDAN scheme
Air India said on Tuesday it has opened booking for its first flight under the Regional Connectivity Scheme to be operated on the Shimla-New Delhi route by its subsidiary Alliance Air.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to inaugurate the maiden flight under the government's ambitious plan to provide connectivity to far and remote areas of the country.
Over 45 unserved and under-served airports would be connected under the scheme – UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik– that seeks to make flying more affordable.
On each flight, 50 per cent of the seats would have a cap of Rs 2,500 per seat/hour.
