BHUBANESWAR

Go Air has announed that it will start operations from here from October 26.

Airport officials said the carrier would run four flights —two Delhi-bound and one each to Kolkata and Mumbai. With the commissioning of the Go Air flights, the total number of domestic flights taking off from the city will touch 20. The development is expected to boost domestic air traffic and tourism in the state, according to a report in the Times of India.

In a letter sent to Biju Patnaik Airport director Sharad Kumar on Monday, the airline sought space for ticket counters, back-up office, apron and airside engineering at the domestic terminal.

“The airline has given us the proposed flight schedules (to and fro) for the four flights. We have sent the schedules to the Airports Authority of India (AAI) headquarters for approval. There may be some changes in the schedules after they are reviewed by AAI,” said the director.
