30 December 2019
Alliance Air, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Air India, has started daily direct flights from Kalaburagi to Bengaluru and onward to Mysuru under the RCS-UDAN scheme. The Kalaburagi airport, built by the Airport Authority of India in collaboration with the state government, has been operationalised under the RCS-UDAN scheme to fulfill the long-awaited demand of the people.
The development of this airport has paved the way for direct connectivity to the state headquarters and other commercial centers.
Until now, the people had the only option to travel by train, which takes more than 15 hours or travel 13 hours by road to reach Mysuru from Gulbarga. Now, locals can travel at ease by taking a 3-hour flight. The commencement of flight operations on this route will also ensure easy connectivity for the pilgrims.
Alliance Air currently connects 59 destinations, with the addition of Kalaburagi there will be 60 stations in Alliance Air’s ambit. With the commencement of the Kalaburagi-Bangalore-Mysuru route, the ministry of civil aviation has operationalised a total of 238 routes under RCS-UDAN.
Alliance Air will deploy its 70-seater opulent aircraft to ensure maximum comfort to the passengers.
