Naveen Asks For AI Fly

Expressing happiness over Centre’s decision to name Jharsuguda airport as Veer Surendra Sai Airport, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has thanked the Prime Minister Narendra Mdoi for it.


“I am glad and thankful to you for naming Jharsuguda Airport as Veer Surendra Sai Airport vide Government of India Gazette notification No. 4536 Dt.16.11.2018,” Mr.Patnaik said. 
 
However, Chief Minister Mr.Patnaik today urged the Prime Minister Mr.Modi to prevail upon Air India (AI) authorities for taking immediate steps to introduce commercial flights from the airport there.

Underscoring the strategic importance of Jharsuguda, which is located strategically in the industrial and mining belt of the State and is a critical point of connectivity to western Odisha, Mr.Patnaik told PM Mr.Modi by sending a missive in which he suggested that one of the existing flights from Bhubaneswar to Delhi could have a stop-over at this Airport.

“During inauguration of the Jharsuguda Airport on 22.09.2018, I had offered full support of the State government for running of commercial flights and had requested for commencing Air India flight operations from Jharsuguda to Delhi”, Mr.Patnaik reminded the Prime Minister.

Chief Minister Mr.Patnaik also informed the Prime Minister about the sudden suspension of Air Odisha flight operations under RCS-UDAN, which had started soon after inauguration of this airport.

Air Odisha has suspended operations from this airport since 6 November, 2018 without any valid reasons, he pointed out.
