With Jagdalpur now connected by air from capital city Raipur, the travel distance between the two cities now gets reduced to 40 minutes, against 15 hours by a train or six to seven hours by a road journey, the release added.
The airfare for a single-way journey has been kept at Rs 1,670, which is in line with the Rs 2,500 ticket price fixed for a one-hour journey under the Udan scheme, it said.
"We are happy to announce the launch of our new routes in Chhattisgarh connecting with Andhra Pradesh. The Udan is a flagship scheme initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to spur economic growth and make air travel more affordable," said Shaishav Shah, managing director, Air Odisha Aviation, and executive director, GSEC.
