Union minister of state for civil aviation Jayant Sinha said the government wants to make air travel affordable for all by introducing a low-fare regime.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a vision: ‘Hawai chappal pahanne wale hawai yatra karenge’ (even people wearing hawai chappal [slippers] could travel by air),” said Sinha while inaugurating the SpiceJet direct daily flight to Kolkata and New Delhi from Gorakhpur here on Tuesday.
“Low cost air travel will hasten the pace of development in the region. The vision of the Prime Minister is to enhance air connectivity in the country and make it affordable for common man,” said the minister. “Modi government believes in ‘sabka sath, sabka vikas’. Inclusive growth is the key to real development and air connectivity will enhance the chances of development and prosperity in the region,” Sinha added. He also thanked SpiceJet CMD Ajay Singh for providing low cost air fare to the people. Pat Lafontaine Authentic Jersey
