The Puducherry government has signed a tripartite memorandum of understanding with the Union aviation ministry and Airports authority of India (AAI) to resume regular flights connecting the Union territory to other destinations under the regional connectivity service.
The Puducherry government extended concessions to make flying affordable. The government proposes to connect Puducherry with cities lying within a distance of 500km by air. The cost of airfare will be around 2,500, which is certainly affordable, said a release.
“The move is expected to give a big boost not only to the tourist inflow but also to industrial investments. The process to operationalise flights is likely to be completed and operations may be started by January, 2017,” said the release. Geoff Cameron Authentic Jersey
