The ministry has proposed to expand the regional connectivity scheme to unserved routes in the second phase of regional connectivity scheme.
“There are various routes like Lucknow-Varanasi, where there is no connectivity. During the second phase, we are expanding it to unserved routes too,” said aviation secretary R N Choubey.
He further added that the routes to be connected will be decided by airlines and not us.
“However, the unserved routes can be between two well connected airports too,” he added.
The bidding for the second phase of RCS will begin from August and the government plans to take it beyond the 31 unserved routes that will get air connectivity in the first phase. Alex Galchenyuk Authentic JerseyShare This
