Jharsuguda, March 31 (LocalWire): Flight services will resume from Jharsuguda’s Veer Surendra Sai Airport on Sunday after a gap of around four months.
Three daily flights will be operated from the airport: New Delhi (3.40 pm), Hyderabad (4.10 pm) and Kolkata (8.40 pm).
In November last year, the Union Civil Aviation Ministry had cancelled the license of Air Odisha, which was operating the flights from Jharsuguda at that time, on charges of irregularities.
Built at a cost of Rs.210 crore and with handling capacity of over 300 passengers, the Veer Surendra Sai Airport was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 22, 2018.
The airport is expected to facilitate regional air connectivity through the UDAN scheme.
