Jharsuguda: Air carrier SpiceJet on Thursday revised the schedule of direct flights between New Delhi and Jharsuguda’s Veer Surendra Sai Airport.
The private airline company has also announced an introductory promotional fare of Rs 3,701 for the Delhi-Jharsuguda flights.
According to the new schedule, the flight will leave New Delhi at 1.50pm and reach VSS Airport at 3.50pm. In its return journey, the flight will leave Jharsuguda at 4.25pm and reach New Delhi at 6.25 pm.
Spicejet will launch its flight operations from the VVS Airport to three major routes- New Delhi, Kolkata and Hyderabad from March 31. It will deploy Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the Jharsuguda-Delhi-Jharsuguda sector and Bombardier Q400 on the other two UDAN sectors of Jharsuguda-Hyderabad-Jharsuguda and Jharsuguda-Kolkata-Jharsuguda.
Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had inaugurated the airport on September 22 last year under the ‘Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik’ (UDAN) scheme.
However, flight operations stopped at the airport after around 15 days as the Union Civil Aviation Ministry had cancelled the license of Air Odisha, which was operating flight from Jharsuguda airport to Raipur, on charges of irregularities.
